Is it possible to run the Contig / PageDefrag tools in Vista? Are they needed? Or does Vista defragment the files / pagefile in background?

File Icons in Widows Vista by - R2D2 -
Hi all ... Did not see a post on this on a quick scan of the newsgroup, but was wondering if there is away to change the file icon in Windows Explorer under Vista. From what I have seen in some blogs and different sites, it might require a hack of the registry. I was wondering if there was a 'cleaner' way of modifying a file icon to make it easier to distinguish between different files (of...

compatibility files problem by -= Cross =-
I do a lot of modding of programs and games and everytime I create or save things in vista x64 sp1 it never goes into the folder I tell it to instead theirs this "compatibility files" thing in the top on the explorer bar where thing are put. I then have to cut and paste them out of there to make anything work. Is there a way to turn this feature off? It's driving me nuts! -- -= Cross =-

Copying Large Files Over The Network....Extreamly SLOW by -Draino-
I am experiencing incredibly poor performance when copying and moving files, and yes, even calculating the time to move the files takes just as long as actually moving the damn files! As this is one of the most basic features of an OS, you'd think they would ensured it would work correctly. Seems they've spent more time making things look pretty than actually making sure the basics...

My Labtop Won't Recognize Any Discs by /AW/
I have a Satellite A305-S6843 Labtop. Wheneve I put in a CD it doesnt show up in the Computer file, as in I can't see it as a file like on my real PC at home. So, the only CDs that I can use are ones that startup by themselves, and not even all of those work. So I'm wondering how do I open files on these CDs or play the games on these CDs , or even just be able to see them on my Labtop.

Vista Explorer Copy by 1%'er
Who was the genius at MS to skip the file name when copying a file? Just look at this screen shot: It's got everything EXCEPT THE FRICKIN' FILE NAME!!?!?!?!!? Why must I keep banging my head against the wall? Why does Vista have to HIDE everything? Why does it treat me like an idiot and protect my every mouse click? I have to click 5 times more now than on XP. Wasn't one of Ballmer's goals...

Won't Move folders by 13owman
When I try to move a folder from 1 drive to another Vista will move the files and make new folders in the designated spot I put them but the folders that I move from all stay in the same spot. Why won't the folders move like they did in every other OS, this is frustrating because sometime the job is interrupted and because some of the folders have 0 Bytes and others have the files that haven't...

Vista backup question by [email protected]
Ok, who was the genius who decided to take the manual file selection out of the backup in Vista??? What a joke! What kind of OS is it that thinks it knows what I want to backup?? For reference, I explicity keep my files *out* of the user profile simply because it causes so many issues. And now with Vista, the posts I see seem to indicate that if my files aren't in the user

Start Menu Search Function by 2grve
hi, Yesterday I rearranged the programs under the start menu. Since then all the programs I had moved into one folder (Office) will no longer work. The search function finds them but clicking on them no longer launches the program. Everything else works fine. The shortcuts for these programs on the desktop still work fine. Any ideas?

Start Menu Search Function by 2grve
hi, wondering if anyone has an idea what is going on. I rearranged some of the programs in my start menu. Since then some programs will show up on search but will not start. The only way to start them is by making a shortcut. SAll of the programs were in the same filder so I am assuming it has something to do with that. The programs include all of the office 2007 suite and adobe acrobat etc...

I'm running two PCs, one with Win XP Pro and one with Vista. Both connect to my department's LAN. When I delete or rename a folder on a network drive, using Win XP Windows Explorer, the procedure appears to work correctly according to XP.

Offline Files Not Available by 909
I have Windows Vista Ultimate x64. I don't understand the reason but I can't seem to find this problem anywhere else. I'm trying to sync a network folder with vista's "offline files" feature but it's nowhere to be seen. When I right click on a network folder the option is not there to make "Always Available Offline". I paid for the Ultimate version, why can't I access the ultimate...
