Vista - firewall affected DSL speed by Richard Fangnail
I just got a new Vista computer and I found that my DSL speed was abnormally slow. I called the ISP and they said to turn off the firewall. This fixed it. I wasn't aware a firewall could affect your modem speed so much. The XP firewall had never done that.

Will this setup Run Vista Ultimate 64? by Justin
Better question, will it run it well enough to actually do work? This machine will be transported all over the world - a laptop won't work for various reasons as the machine will have to be left on overnight. So I'm building something that can be transported in a hard case along with a 17 inch cheap monitor. 1 Linkworld 43706-228FU+P04 Black Steel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case 430W...

Black screen after update. by Kaim
I recenlty installed an update for Vista X64, but after the computer restarted there was just a black screen. I can move the mouse around, but I can't do anything else. I tried to run the system restore, but it says my c drive contains errors and it won't work. Anyone know how to fix this? -- Kaim

Disk Check Hangs up at 62% by Hooligan140
I must have scheduled a Disk check on my vista laptop. When it booted up and performed the disk check, It keeps hanging up at 62% 5 of 5. When I turn unit on, it prompts to hit a key to cancel disk check. Well, I can hit ALL of the keys and it doesn't bypass check. I don't think I have the install disc because it was a preload when I bought. Any suggestions? Thanks... -- Hooligan140

I have tried to get it going numerous times but...

Defragmentation not working by stwstl5926
I have a rather peculiar problem. The system I'm trying to defrag is currently 51% fragged, and, as you can imagine, that's just much too high. I've tried defragging using both Vista's built in defragger and the software Defraggler, but each time, the fragmentation level goes UP by a percent or two when it's finished. I've never encountered defrag issues on this level before. Any ideas? The...
