Hi, I downloaded (saved) the exe file, then tried to run it, but I get the message:

 

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

Thanks!

Nice find, but how do you remove those programs from the control panel if you don't want them anymore?

Save the file into a folder. (eg. Desktop)

Double click on it.

Probably it will ask for Run or Cancel (windows security).

You can see the hard driver working, in my computer (p4 3Ghz HT) takes about 10 sec. it may change.

 

Inga: try donwload the file again, and check where you are saving it, try save it in root C:

Hi there, I was reading your post and all the good things that can be added to your control room to help keep pc in good health. You said it is only good for XP and Windows 2003 I believe. If this is the case unfortunately for me I still only have windows ME. Is there anything availabe for ME or any suggestions you could give to me.

 

Also I was given a Windows XP for Christmas last year and everyone told me that I talked to about it that I could not just add it to my ME. Is this true and if so would I have to somehow take me off my pc and then add my New XP? The XP that I got is, Windows XP Home Edition. Just wondering if you all could give me some advice about this.

 

Have A Great Day
