  1. Windows xp professional on a Windows 10 computer


    I have some software that needs Windows XP Pro or Vista to work. Will it work on the new computers with Windows 10?

    Computer is about to crash and need this software for my business. It is a Point Of Sale and they stopped making it also, but I have years of info and customers on it.

    Thanks

    :)

    Windows XP professional

    I am having problems with my PC. The system started rebooting while I was trying to login yesterday. Since then, the system boots up till the Windows XP logo is displayed and starts rebooting. When I tried to go to "Safe Mode" the process stops at "Partition c:\Windows\ststen32\Drivers\Mup.Sys" and starts rebooting. This loop goes on.

    Can any one suggest how to repair/reinstall the XP professional edition.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
