    New OS install Is that my problem?
    « on: April 07, 2009, 01:22:26 PM »
    I have a pent lll 750 mb of ram. I just loaded a new xp os on a new hard drive, I also loaded Kaspersky 09. I loaded my old Win2000 when I went to update security and load updates I got the message Expected verision was not found on your machine. when I do a scan with Kaspersky I get postives for detections for anything from dangerous to moderate. Tjis may be related I went into Admistrative tools Services to find a file named Superfetch and couldn't find it to do a tweak I read about. Thanks for any consideration.

    I just loaded a new xp os on a new hard drive, .... I loaded my old Win2000 .
    For everyone's benefit here, can clarify what you've done?  Do have a dual-boot configuration with Win 2000 and Win XP?

        Hey Soybean

                          Geeez. That would be "Office" 2000. Big typo/brain lock.

        Superfetch is a Vista feature, but not an XP feature.

        Where did you get your Win XP OS?

          Hey Soybean Your message got truncated, And there you go the article said that the superfetch was an up date to xp "prefetcher". Well that solved some confusion.

          I hit the Post button too soon, then edited to complete the post.

          Is your new OS a genuine Microsoft Windows CD? Did you successfully register Windows online after installing it?

            Hey Soybean, I got it at Newegg. I know  there were two things one other then register and I don't know which I did unless one of the two requirements were the part to fill in your name before the registering a password, then I did both, and I haven't been notified to register since I loaded it  -04 02 09-.
