Firefox Start Up In Windows Vista Home Premium 64 Bit

Whenever I start Firefox on my Vista home premium 64 bit system, I always get a window asking me what I would like my home page and search engine to be. I check yahoo for my home page and my search engine, check "don't ask me again" and save. However when I start firefox again, it goes to the firefox welcome page and the same box pops up again. Anybody know what's going on? This is a recent phenomenon, and happens no matter which search engine or home page I select.

Windows Vista Premium Home SP1 Windows Defender Doesn't Start Automatically
I am running Windows Vista Premium Home SP1. When I boot my computer, Windows Defender doesn't start automatically. It works fine if I start it manually. I have never run Windows OneCare, MSCONFIG shows it set to start, the Windows Defender service is set to automatic and Tools | Options has all the checkboxes checked.

Upgrading VISTA 64 Bit From Home Premium To Ultimate
Trying to upgrade my new Toshiba Satellite laptop from 64 bit VISTA Home Premium to 64 bit VISTA Ultimate Have plenty of space on C: drive - 150GB with approx 50GB used and 100 GB free

While in Home Premium, I insert and run the VISTA Ultimate CD Select upgrade I have it connected to internet so it can retrieve updates. It goes though the process of upgrading but ends with a message similar to Windows could not configure one or more system components. It then reverts back to Home Premium. I have tried performing the upgrade both before and after installing updates to Home Premium- no difference..........

32-bit Vista Home Premium: Services.msc + OneCare
32-bit Vista Home Premium. Have Windows Live OneCare installed, but am getting a msg that the service is disabled. I cannot get into services either through the start search box or through the control panel. If I use the box, the service never displays and I can no longer use the start menu unless I go to task manager and log off and then log back on. If I use the control panel, it just sits there with the revolving blue circle. If I open task manager and click on the services tab there is a service listed called OcHealthMon which is described as Window Live One Care Health Monitor and it says the status is stopped. If I right click and select start service I get the msg 'The operation could not be completed. Access is denied"

If I boot in safe mode I can go into services, but it says that OneCare has an Automatic startup type and is already started. I have MalwareBytes installed on the PC and it finds no malicious items in safe mode, but in normal startup the desktop icon has a litle security center emblem in the lower right hand corner. I cannot open the security center from the control panel - blue wheel again.

Not Recognized Smart Card Reader On Vista Home Premium 64 Bit
I have to set up a smart card reader on Vista Home Premium 64 bit for a user, but cannot get it to be recognized. It is an SCR331, about 6 years old. I have downloaded Vista64 drivers from SCMMicro but though the card reader will work on an XP machine, it will not work on Vist64. When I install it, or reboot and it detects new hardware, and tell it where I downloaded the drivers it says this folder does not contain the necessary drivers. If I look at the 32bit drivers online it says there is a firmware upgrade but I do not want to apply that and have the reader stop working on the XP machine as well.

Windows Home Premium 32 Bit IE
I've a weird problem with my IE8. Any page I browse to shows a 'Done, with errors on Page' at the status bar and most other sites such as hotmail turn up blank, with the 'Done' at the status bar and a warning sign next to it.

Its driving me crazy, and I cannot spot anything in Event Viewer System/Application logs that corresponds to this occurrence. Is this a virus that has taken over ...? Should I try restoring the system to any restore point?

Fix For Home Premium: Firefox (preferred) Or Internet Explorer
I have been having more or less continuing problems with my HP OEM Vista Home Premium. Several times a day it has been hanging up whether I am using Firefox (preferred) or Internet Explorer. I have checked with every tool I can put my hands on but with no positive results. I am now looking at: Reinstalling Vista OEM (would loose all my data information, bookmarks, purchased tools, etc). Buying a copy of Vista Home Premium Upgrade for about $60 or so on Ebay. By doing this could I do a repair on Vista without loosing all my info? Buying Norton Internet Security or a version that hones in on Vista.

Is There A "real" Backup Program In 64-bit Vista Home Premium?
Is there a "real" backup program in 64-bit Vista Home Premium? One where I can select the files and folders important to us? All I can find on this HP computer is a simplistic backup that has me checking boxes for things like "pictures" and "documents." That won't do, as there are other folders with data that require backing up. And, how would I do a disaster recovery backup?

Upgrading 32 Bit Home Premium To 64 Bit
When I put the 64 bit install disk in, it goes through the usual install process. I entered the product key from my 32 bit box, and continued. The install then fails as it says it cannot find an authorised disk to install on. My 32 bit Vista is fully activated, so I am not sure how to get around this.

Home Premium: 32 Bit Version Vs. 64 Bit
I have a laptop with the Vista Home Premium 32 bit version installed. I am
thinking of upgrading my desktop from Windows 2000 to the same platform, since I would prefer to keep these two computers as look-alikes. Some desktops (e.g., Dell) are now sold with the 64 bit version. I am told that the 32-bit version will read up to only 3 GB of RAM, whereas the 64-bit version will read up to 4 GB (?).

If I were to install the 64-bit version on my desktop, are there other complications that I might run into when I attempt to run programs/exchange data on both systems? I also run some DOS programs from an earlier century;

Expired Product Key Of Windows Vista Home Premium
I recently received a new computer with all new parts that had Windows XP Media Center Edition on it. I had my copy of the upgrade disc for Windows Vista Home Premium and wanted to upgrade. Well now Windows is telling me that my Product ID has expired and when I try to re-enter the ID it says it is not valid, even though it is a legitimate copy of Windows Vista. I did have this installed on another computer but then reverted back to XP for other reasons. Is there any way to get my system registered without buying another product key?

Re-Installation Of Home Premium (32 Bit)
I am facing problems with the registry of the OS. When I install new software, I get some unusual error messages pointing to registry. When I try to uninstall old software, it leaves traces of the software even on the Start up Menu.

Can I do a format of the entire hard disk, reinstall Vista Home Premium (32 bit) again ?? Will it consider my old license or do I need to purchase an additional license ?

If I do a clean installation of the entire OS, what will be the case for Microsoft Office Student Edition 2003 ? Will it consume additional license if I clean install it?

Home Premium 32 Bit 0x0000007e
I have a Dell XPS 410 with Vista Home Premium 32 bit. Bought it over two years ago, and not a bit of trouble until three weeks ago, when it stopped shutting down properly. Same problem when I ask it to sleep: it starts the shutdown/sleep process, then goes blue screen, then comes back up with a message saying Windows was not shut down properly. Otherwise, it runs exactly like before. The bugcheck is 0x0000007e (0xc0000005, 0x8e0699b5, 0x803d0b68, 0x803d0864)

A Dell tech working remotely on my computer told me that I had an infection in the registry and wanted $130 to fix it. I'm trying to fix it myself, but so far no luck. I was running Norton 360 at the time of the infection, and I've since installed Kapersky, which didn't fix the infection. The Kapersky tech did send me Malwarebyte's Anti- alware. My next step is to contact Norton since the infection happened under their watch

Wipe Home Premium 64 Bit - Reinstall XP
My co-worker bought a new toshiba laptop with Vista Home Premium 64 bit.It is not compatible with our remote access system which is why shebought the pc to begin with. I tried to start the installation with the XP installation CD but it won't allow me to start the process. I figured out how to wipe the HD but when it still won't boot from the XP CD. I used the recovery disk to reinstall Vista HP 64 bit. What am I missing here? It just will not boot from the XP CD. I went out and changed the bios boot feature to boot from the CD drive and itstill doesn't work.

Sandboxie Alternative 64 Bit Home Premium?

New Build, Home Premium 64 Bit Freezing/crashing
I finished building my first computer this morning, and installed vista home premium 64 OEM to finish it off. Specs are:

Asus P5N E SLI
Corsair 4gb 800mhz
q6600 Quad Core

I've updated the bios to the latest version, and have put all drivers on but Vista keeps crashing. It freezes for no apparent reason. I've been using Vista HP (32) on my 2yr old laptop with no problems (I'm using it to type to you all now), and I'm lost as to what is wrong. I've had a very brief look around and it sounds like another user on here has had a similar problem, but as I've just built the whole system I'm wondering if there's anything I've missed which is causing it to crash/freeze/generally be unresponsive?

64 Bit OEM Home Premium: Harware Does Not Work
I am getting a new PC. The 64 bit OEM version of Home Premium is only $10 more, and I will have the hardware to run it. However, there are many that warn against the 64 bit version, and the last thing I would want is to find out that some hardware does not work, or that there are problems with our home network. I am also worried about not being able to run 16 bit programs and bits and pieces without proper signatures. Apparently the 64 bit version rejects these. The best alternative would be to buy the 64 bit version, but install and run it as 32 bit untill such time when I progressively replace hardware, the other PC's etc. Is this possible? I have heard that it can be run as 32 bits, but is this across the system, or is it on application by application basis.

Sandboxie Alternative 64 Bit Home Premium Not Compatible?
I've been using Sandboxie for safe surfing on Vista Home Premium 32 bit. Now I'm preparing for a new PC with Vista Home Premium 64 bit and Sandboxie is not compatible. Other than conventional anti-virus and firewall does anyone have an alternative? So far I'm thinking along the lines of Virtual Box since VMWare is a bit pricey. But I'm not sure how well it works as I've never set it up before.

Apparently 64 bit Vista tries to prevent altering the kernel image in memory which is how Sandboxie and similar programs intercept disk writes to redirect everything to a sandbox folder. At this point all I have so far is running Firefox with NoScript.
