complaint

Tue, 21/06/2016 - 7:52pm
Seriously,  You are microsoft and you don't have an online complaints option.  Snail mail is the best you can do.  Well, to those who want to look.  There is an entire list of attorneys employed by microsoft.  You can find their phone numbers by searching for the attorney's directory on the Washington State Bar Website.  I suggest a few million pissed off microsoft victims start leaving messages on their voice mails.  Fill those voice mails up until they can't get their legal work done.  Then we'll start a class action suit for everyone screwed by the windows 10 upgrade.

Windows 10 Upgrade

Tue, 31/05/2016 - 11:00pm

I have had to reinstall my OS from the beginning on my computer which means I had to install Windows Vista (Ugh!)....I installed it fine, I upgraded to Windows 7 SP1....not a problem. Now, I'm trying to go ahead and upgrade to Windows 10 and I'm being asked to enter the product key I already entered that came with my computer/OS....it won't accept it.

What do I need to do?

Lost disc

I have unintentionally deleted Microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage and cant access my outlook contacts. How can I get a copy of the "CD Rom" which my system asks me to install so that it can install what i need?

Windows key doesn't seem to be functioning.

Wed, 06/04/2016 - 1:22am

Hello,

I am currently having an issue with my Windows key. Whenever I do the keys (Windows key + S), it doesn't seem to show the search menu at all. I recently started having this issue a few days ago. It works totally fine with the R key, yet I am not too sure why it doesn't work for the S function key. I believe some other keys work, and some don't. Specifically whenever I try to do a command with the Windows key. 

Another issue: Whenever there is a program on my taskbar. I try to right click it to close it, nothing really happens at all. When I left click on the date, where it shows the time etc. It doesn't seem to open, nothing really happens at all. I can't really close programs just by right clicking it on the taskbar and hit close. I physically have to go to the window and hit the "X" at the top to close it. If you happen to know any solutions for the two problems, please reply back! 

Thank you.

Major Computer Issues with Windows

Fri, 01/04/2016 - 9:17pm
I've been having major issues with my computer and certain browser or game windows. The screen will continually bug out and the icon on the taskbar follows in suit. When the screen adjusts, any typing I was doing disappears. I end up having to paste in text and quickly hit enter to chat in a game. This is incredibly bothersome and I was told that it may have to do with Windows 10. I've pretty much explained it, but If a youtube video would help, posting one wouldn't be a problem. Apologies if this is the wrong forum section, I wasn't completely sure which one to put it under.

Appreciate any help. Thanks

XP Pro for Embedded Systems End of Distribution

Tue, 08/03/2016 - 6:13pm

Hello,

First off, I was told to post this here by a Microsoft Partner Network Technical Support Engineer.

I work for a medical company which produced digital xray imaging equipment.  We currently have an OEM manufacture our custom computer tower which is running on Windows XP Pro for Embedded Systems.  The OEM customers which we sell to have reasons for not being able up change the operating systems on these models and/or would like us to be able to continue to provide them with service stock (replacement towers) for 10 years.  One of our customers in particular has over 1,000 of these x-ray systems deployed across the world.  We have been told that the End of Distribution for XP will be 12-31-2016, and we have reached out to our computer manufacturer with the question of how we can continue to support our customers with existing XP systems in the field. (replacing a failed computer tower or hard drive with new)  Initially we were told nothing could leave our building with XP after the end of distribution date.  Our computer OEM reached out to Microsoft with these questions and we received the following answer:

Regarding XP Pro for Embedded Systems.

XP Professional for Embedded Systems end of distribution date is 12/31/2016 for the 32 bit version and 4-25-2020 for the 64 bit version, although security updates have already ceased.

It is also possible to deploy an XP system after 12-31-2016 using Windows 7 FES COA with some conditions.

1) it has to be an existing image on an existing product line (no new XP based products)

2) it has to utilize XP OEM activation.

3) it is understood that Microsoft will provide no fixes, support or help of any sort

The above statement came from our computer manufacture who is a Microsoft OEM.  I would like to verify this information with Microsoft directly as Microsoft controls the licensing and rules for use, not the OEM.  I would hate to ship a replacement tower to one of our customers in January 2017 and it come back on us and our only rebuttal being that a 3rd party said it was ok.  By the statement above regarding continued distribution of our legacy XP systems, it sounds like:

1) Continued Sales of our Legacy product with existing image utilizing XP OEM activation (This may be allowed??????)

2) Replacement hardware (hard drive or replacement tower) with existing XP image and XP OEM activation would be allowed?
