    Question about the preposition.

    I am beginner at English.

    my sentences might have mistake.

    There are three sentences that have prepositions.

    Please look at prepositions of red color.

    The program installed at my computer is out of order.
    The program installed on my computer is out of order.
    The program installed on my operating system is out of order.

    Which sentence is correct? or is it possible that all sentences? If meaning is different, please tell me a little bit detail.

    Thank you for reading this post.

    Re: about the preposition.

    The first one is incorrect. The second and third are OK.

    Re: about the preposition.

    Prepositions are difficult. You simply have to learn which preposition works in conjunction with other words. There is very little logic involved.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
