  9. Rob says:

    I was deleting some pre-loaded programs off my system. I guess I deleted the Dock program which allows for quick desktop access to programs. How can I reload the WINDOWS VISTA Dock program. I inserted the Vista CD but stopped at the page to select the partition as it appeared that I was actually going to be reloading Vista. Thanks.

  11. Caiju says:

    Thanks for sharing where to find the “Run” box. Was an absolute pain trying to find it in Vista.

    Need to find it in order to do msconfig to delete these hidden startups. Booting takes forever and these useless software packages installed on newer systems just loads up the memory.

    Thanks again.

  37. Analisa says:

    Windows 8 was first unveiled at the D9 conference back in June, and the most groundbreaking thing
    about Microsoft’s new OS is that it is going to run just as well on your tablet as on PC. Using Advanced Folder Encryption, you will be able to encrypt folders as well as password protect them so that no one other than yourself will be able to access them, let alone copy or delete them, regardless of whether or not protected files are set to be displayed in the original directory. Why pay full MRP when you can get discount without much effort.
