Shorcut exe application opening via Internet explorer

1. RFTerm is Launching via Internet Explorer instead of .exe ,Once after Launching via Internet explorer , we can able to terminate the RFTerm from SOTI lockdown menu. 2.

Old Windows XP PC hard drive..

I had a Windows XP PC and for whatever reason it stopped working and couldnt seem to be fixed, so i bought a Windows 7 laptop. I removed the hard drive, soundcard and drives(CD/DVD and floppy) with the intention of using them again somehow. I thought id be able to buy a tower in which i could install the sound card, hard drive and drives(CD/DVD and floppy) like an external drive. However as yet i have not managed how to, if i could at least salvage the files off the hard drive that would be great and was hoping someone on here would know how?

What should I do if my laptop won't install programs, games, and plugins?

I have a Window XP that won't install programs like adobe flash player, Ultra ISO, Winrar, after resetting my laptop to factory settings. I already looked for the files but i don't know how to start but the only files that are in my Local Disk is DDI, PerfLogs, Program Files, Users, VAIO Entertainment, and Windows.

I don't know if this has to do with the program files x86 or just upgrading the windows?

SNMP service


I have such a question. I understand, that it is not usual way to configure system, but I need to install SNMP service without using "Add and remove programs" applet (Windows XP).

Can anyone help me? Can I solve my problem using registry editor and instsrv.exe, for example? Our organization uses self-written system of software distribution, so I need to create my own installer package to install SNMP service and some other software, which will use SNMP, and I can not use any other tool. When I create service manually, snmp.exe starts, but does not work. I had added  to system32 folder DLLs from this list

But no success.
