What Anti Virus? by Denise[_4_]
Hi, can someone please advise of a good free anti virus program that runs well with Vista Home Premium. I downloaded the bought version 8.0 and began having problems with the computer lagging, and generally slow all over, not thinking it was AVG, I checked every other possible issue that I thought may be causing it.

I choose not to use the Acronis products because executing scheduled backup tasks...

Vista SP1 removed the Search shortcut from the Start Panel by renegade
I sent the foolowing message to Microsoft - Message: Microsoft removed the Search button from the Start panel for Vista in SP1. This is a great disservice for your users. You may believe the alternate approaches are sufficient, but you are SO VERY WRONG when it comes to the average user. I do not care what your reasons or excuse are, you are still WRONG and it was a thoughtless mistake.You...

What tells files "THIS IS VISTA"? by UnknownTBeast
I know this seems totally absurd but really, what tells files that the OS you are running is Vista Home Prem. or Ultimate? I know there entries in the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion in the registry and from what Carey Frisch told me that sysinfo32 gets its info from some weird file in the %SystemRoot%System32WbemRepository folder that I can only open in a text...

Boot up Problems by Richard
I just built a new computer, it seems to have boot up problems: blank screen, nothing showing on display, the hard drive light flickers once and that is it, however after pressing the reset button, everything boots up fine and windows runs OK. This happens about 50% of the time, I don't think it is windows issue because this happened when there was no operating system on the hard drive. I...

shifted cursor in Vista makes navigation difficult by BrainyBear
Ok, here's a problem I haven't seen anyone ask about: when I bought a new machine with Vista on it, I immediately noticed that I was having trouble clicking exactly on the point I wanted. That is, the location where the cursor is clicking on is not the point of the cursor arrow, and this is even more noticeable when it's the pointer-hourglass combination -- the location it's pointing to is...
