Impossible to kill app by
In XP killing an app usually meant just using Task Manager. Sometimes Sysinternals pskill. But it nearly always worked. Now I have a situation where a normal app (Shareaza) hangs, and is not killable. Taskman tries to kill it, but after issuing the command nothing happens. Pskill just hangs in the attempt. When the app hangs, Vista refuses to restart or shutdown. I have to use the hardware...

Active Directory by
Hello all: After I joined the Vista (business) client to Windows 2003 active directory domain I am not able to login. I get an error message "There is a time and/or date difference between the client and server". Does anybody know a workaround for this issue? I am trying to login from wired desktop machine. Thanks for you help. Ciao.

MSDN Vista Ultimate license key by
I have the MSDN release of Windows Vista and I installed Vista Ultimate. It says I have to enter a key in 30 days. Can I put my RC2 key here, or what should I do? Is it normal for a MSDN release to request a key and activation?

Poll: Who likes Vista? Performance issues by
I'm a fresh Windows Vista Ultimate user. Although I don't have a 1000$ PC, Windows Vista is working just fine for me with all the Glass, Desktop Compositioning and Media Center. It's quite fast on bootup, I can say maybe faster than XP(maybe because of the ReadyBoost(1GB usb stick). All the drivers were installed correctly and the first time I booted up Windows Update downloaded latest...

Vista Networking Problems by
Either Vista (Beta 2 and now build 5536 -- I just joined Technet and downloaded it) has a serious problem with it's networking code, or a lot of the internet just happens to randomly have problems when I'm using Vista. For example, today I went to Adobe.com (because I noticed Vista 5536 includes a link to "Windows Live Mail Desktop Beta" on the startup screen -- however it does not include...

Live OneCare by
So stupid me bought Windows Live OneCare a few weeks back and then I decided to put in Pre-RC1. OneCare immediately complained. I look at the box and it states for PC's with XP. Ok, my fault right? But wait a minute, I saw some advertisements on Vista pages on the MS site. So, am I missing something?

Vista on a slow computer by
FYI: I just installed RC1 build 5728 on my new Dell D420 laptop, and it runs fine for Internet, Word, and Excel usage. By "runs fine" I mean that the laptop has very good performance for its intended usage. Note that Aero Glass works. Dell D420 : Is a Centrino laptop

My Upgrade experience by
First of all I was able to install the new prerelease Vista but very little worked. I could never install the last Beta version on my computer. Very little worked on this version including Quicken 2000, MSOffice 2000, free AVG 7.1, Zone Alarm, my Epson printer(CX5200), my modem, Nero 6.6 etc. did not work. I tried to download a file and that didn't work. I hope this is not the case with...

Virtual PC 2007 by
Can Virtual PC 2007 (RC1), installed on Vista 64 bit, run 32 bit Windows XP? I may upgrade to Vista 64, however, have a few apps that only run on 32 bit XP. So, I thought I'd just use VPC 2007 64 bit and install a 32 bit Win XP. Any thoughts?
