  1. I just did a clean install of windows XP on a Vista machine, and most of the software have errors connecting to the database (desktop maestro, comodo firewall, driver genius, etc) The only program that succeeded in updating was Malwarebytes. Can anyone diagnose my problem please? I have SP3.

    * Warning deleting the Partition will remove all User data and Windows system files

    Note: not all "Vista Machines" have all XP drivers available
    You will need to check with your manufacture on this
