Default Desktop Manager for Older Version

Please Login to Remove!

Am using bb-9000, i think OS is 4.
I need software for UPGRADING MY OS, and SETTING UP STUFFS IN MY BB.
Is it DESKTOP MANAGER ??

Tried download it frm bb site, but all i get is error says "I need WINDOWS XP with SERVICE PACK 3"...

I tried downloading old versions from bb site, but i think they are all same :(

You will need to update the operating system on your computer first.

You need at least Service Pack 3 for Windows XP (as noted in the error message).

BTW - if you are still running Windows XP SP2, you aren't getting any security patches. That's very bad. They stopped patching XP SP2 18 months ago.

Upgrade - now - to Windows XP SP3.

Suit yourself.
You have an unpatched machine, highly exploitable. Desktop Manager is not your problem here.

And the computer may be running slow because of the overhead of all the malware...only partly kidding, as there's a good chance it's true. As NJ says, you've left yourself open big time.

Download CCleaner and run it. It will clean the computer of old temp files and cookies. Then download the service pack then DM.
