Problems updating to vista ultimate
Bob Nuke and repave with a different operating system is Not a simple answer.First of all it shows very poor trouble shooting skills and second, your comment on Vista is totally unsupported.I also suggest that you install the latest version of Firefox 4 and select add ons and install Bit Defender.You will have a tiny Red dot in the Tab that let's you run it at will.And to offer proof, I am currently on a Vista machine that is working perfect on a Lenovo Think Pad. There is nothing wrong with Windows Vista, it had its problems when it was first released, those have been ironed out a long time ago, Vista is now a robust and fast operating system, I have been using Vista Home Premium every day on my computer for the last three years and I have had no problem with it whatsoever, it is reliable, it doesnt crash it doesn't freeze up.I have used every Windows OS since windows 3.1 and I know for a fact there has never been a Windows OS prior to Windows Vista that was as reliable, and robust as Vista, I dont reboot my computer for weeks at a time, sometimes months and if it wasnt for updates requireing reboots, it would probably be even longer.And every once in a while an updatewill install but I don\u0027t know why. I run several free security software programs: Avast, Threatfire, Ad-Aware, Super Anti-Spyware, IObit Security 360, and Glary Utilities with Online Armor Firewall. Quite often that will jump start a program to run on its' own, and if it doesn't, you can just go to "Computer" in the hierarchy of your machine, then to Downloads, which could either be in "C" or your machine's name, or even under YOUR name. When you are done, it will ask you to do another restart, but you can actually finish several downloads before you do the restart. I would remove the many anti programs and install Windows Security Essentials.
That was 2 years ago, and the Dell machine finally just QUIT (I'd gotten a Blue Screen almost every day, sometimes several times a day).
I will scan very fast for Malware and Viruses and can be used in conjunction with any other scanners that you have. As to the Apple comment, there are some that are upset about the change from Power PC chips to Intel or even from the mighty Motorola 68K line.
I've found a few machines that will not run Windows 7 at all. Anyone that thinks changing horses will solve this issue will only find themselves with more saddle sores.
Some of the 'successful' solutions on the boards were SO complicated and still more miss than hit.
Vista wouldn't download updates for me, wouldn't let my printer use its full range of features and wouldn't respond even when I asked it nicely.
