I have Windows XP Service Pack 2 and when I try to run a program, I am receiving a message from Microsoft Windows – Data Execution Program. When I hit the Close Message button, the box will automatically quit.

What can I do to prevent this?

And how can I add an exception to the programs I want to open.

Help please.

After installing updates and installing Service Pack 2 on my Windows XP computer, I started getting this Open File Security Warning alert box.  This happen every time I open any files on my PC. I searched on a site and they said that this feature is added when you installed SP2 on your PC to improve Windows Security. But this is just aggravating and annoying.

How can I disable it?

I am running a windows XP on a very slow computer. At times I struggle to keep the least number of applications alive so that they would occupy the least RAM. Of late I have noticed a suspicious file appearing in my tasks of task manager.

It is named as svchost.exe.

Could any one tell me if this is a genuine process or a virus.

While working on PrimoPDF there is an error message which pops up on my Windows XP Professional SP3 machine.

This error is really annoying since it keeps popping up with any user who tries to access the software. I am literally not able to perform any action on the application.

I have tried uninstalling it and completely reinstalling back again but the error seems to come back. I did a small research on the web and ran a registry check to find out any .dll error message but the error still pops up.

Has anyone come across an error with this application?

I used WinXP Home SP2. Recently I tried to divert WinXP Home SP2 to WinXP Pro SP2. I upgraded the system successfully.

When the upgrade is successfully done I clicked on my computer to go to system properties but I failed to find system restore tab. After that I went to system restore service but found this problem.

Could not start the SR Service on Local Computer. Error 5:

Access is denied.

Now what can I do? Need your help friends.

1. Took a snapshot information first that I need to merge.

2. Made a clone of an existing virtual image.

3. Created a new Virtual machine set up.

But after attempting to create a new virtual machine the following error message pops up:
