Vista Shut Down Question by Roger
Vista Ultimate SP1. When I shut down my computer it goes from the desktop to the blue-green Vista shut down screen, blinks, goes back to my desktop screen and then does a normal shut down. How do I prevent going back to the desktop again? Not a problem, just annoying. Thanks, Roger Las Vegas

Bootup issue. by sag12
My HP Pavilion keeps booting to "System Restore"? And after you do a restore to a different time, it boots right back up to that spot. It just started doing this after a Microsoft auto update which I can not find out what. The update was done around 1:00am yesterday. -- sag12

disable ease of access in login screen by Matt
Is there a way to disable the ease of access utility icon on the bottom left corner of the login screen (and the screen when you lock the computer) Here at school I constantly get people messing with these settings when i lock my system and walk away. Should the lock screen not be a complete lock on changing the system? Thanks in advance

Da Jerk count is going up by measekite
"measekite" wrote in message ... I just finished rubbing myself with Da Lamb Chop. Each time I rub myself (Da Baboon - I call it Da Baboon because it makes me think it's BIG), I increase Da Jerk count. So Da Jerk count has been increased.

Does he by measekite
Does Da Jerk have jet lag. After a brief flurry he is letting Da LambChop go crazy. But Da LambChop is already crazy. Look at what we have in this ng. 1 Old Fart and 1 Young Fart both cut from the same log. Both forge names and both post under a variety of user handles. They are both stupid. The only real difference is one is much more of a piece of garbage than the other. Guess which...

Toshiba Gigabeat and XP compatible w/ Vista? by Daisey826
I have a Toshiba Gigabeat that is XP compatible. Will I ever be able to use it with Vista? At this point, I can't even get the softwear to load properly. Does Vista not recognize softwear that is XP compatible? Or will I have to buy all new devices now that I have Vista on my computer? I am just frustrated because my old computer had Windows 98 on it and it was too old to use my MP3 player....

Acronis True Image Home 2009 by oscar
In the past I have recommended Acronis True Image for a good backup tool for Vista, but my experiences with the very recent release of Acronis True Image 2009 and reports that there are bugs in this latest release, I recommend passing on Acronis TIH 2009 for 64 bit Vista.

System Restore gripe by Brandon Taylor[_2_]
One thing I REALLY hate about System Restore is that, more often than not, when you try to uninstall a program, the RESTORE POINT that Windows has to create before it tries to uninstall the program occupies much more space than the program originally did. Maybe Microsoft can alleviate this problem in their making of Windows 7? Weigh in on this and let me know what you think. Brandon Taylor

"Set Association Control Panel" by CWLee
Running Vista Ultimate, 64-bit, in Classic Mode. How do I get to the "Set Association Control Panel"? I've looked in what are, to me, all the obvious places. I suspect it is called something else. I'm looking for it because I received an attachment from a friend in an email, and the attachment is photo1.dat and when I try to open it I'm told I need to associate some hardware/software...

Problem installing Vista 64 bit by Colin
I have just bought Vista Ultimate with Service Pack 1. My DVD autorun is not working properly. I assume I must use setup.exe then. However, I want to install 64 bit version (so I use the 64 disc) and setup will not let me run (I presume setup is the menu starter). I get the message that setup.exe is not a valid win32 application. Can someone help? I am running Windows...
