Hi Keith,
Can you tell me what application to use to copy the instructions on restoring my files without using my data. The site you gave comes with graphics, so Im not sure what application will capture graphics and text.
Thank you,
Classy

Click Screen Print 32 in my signature, set it to capture the active window, turn off print option, use the save to disk option, choose JPeg as the format, then click browse to choose the folder you want to store them in, making a new sub folder in my pictures is good so you know where they are

If you have cable, there is a programme which will install all the current updates in one go, including your friend, windows installer

It is a 206MB file and this is what it has on it, after you download it, you just click to run it

Dearest Keith,
I am a novice with lots of experience, and thank you for compilmient on thinking I know how to print out from a site which shows step by step instruction on how to do a '' Restore without losing your data. For this I need it printed out on paper, so I read it as Im doing it.
It has happened enough times that my applications slowly stop working from viruses and trojans. Enough times where I have decided to buy windows XP. Did you know they still charging price is as if it was a new program, wow its expensive.
My question right now is, do I need the ''FULL VERSION OF XP'' or the upgrade. Since my computer came with windows on I thought I needed the full version. And I find the system ''restore to keep all data, doesnt help my applications run better then I'll just have to do a new istallment.
In your previous post you listed ALL applications; where do I download these applications from? Im concerned I can not even do a restore and keeping my data since I cant even download anything. It fails to recognize the manfaturer/author; and it ''times out.
Soooo, if my sysstem wasnt upgraded, I suppose I need the full version of XP. I seem to need it once a year anyway.
Always learning,
Classy

PS. If I do not not talk before the holidays, I want to wish you the happiest holidays to you. :tazz:

On a web page, click tools then internet options, click advanced then look through the list to put a tick in the box for

Print background colours and images, click apply, click OK, close the browser. This will print the graphics which are part of the guide

[attachment=5326:attachment]

Open the browser, click the link

http://www.geekstogo...ws-XP-t138.html

then press file then print, you need to print pages 1 through 5

If you are going to get an XP CD then get an OEM full version of either Home or Pro because using it to clean install will be better than an upgrade
