Hey Warrior,

I usually reformat each of my 3 computers every 6 - 9 months.

This is becoming difficult, though, because Vista only allows one install before you have to call Microsoft and sit on the line wiht an MS rep while they "deactivate" your initial install.

I've already had to reformat 2 work computers with Vista, and each time took me ~60 minutes to call MS, get through to someoen, etc...

I've switch all my home computers over to Vista (but I keep a partitiion on my gaming PC for XP). It seriously is a far superior OS for everything but gaming. I would suggest upgrading ASAP. You can't reformat constantly with Vista to begin with, and it really doesnt' take long to download 60MB service packs over a cable modem.

So did I, although I had a Ghost file that was mostly configured the way I liked it. Then I only had a few driver updates, etc after re-ghosting.

However, after running Vista, I haven't noticed the slowdown nearly the same as XP. The clean feeling after a system reboot isn't there either. Vista runs better than XP. Highly recommended.
