Wierd things with new Vista install.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I formated my drive and restored the computer...

1st off. It comes with a trial of Norton Internet Security.
I'm getting rid of it as soon as I can.
When you log on, a window pops up and it says in the title, the month, day, time, year. Then it says this page cannot be displayed.

I don't know what the hell this is, but I think it is somehow related to Snorton.

Then I went and backed up my previous install with Acronis True Image Home 2009. Now when I mount the image of my old drive, and try to go through some files, it says you do not have permission to access the files, yet I'm administrator.
What the heck is going on? Will I have to format this thing again? I'm soon not gunna use a OEM install.

Did you get a recovery DVD with your computer (or better yet, a clean Vista DVD)? Try using that instead of the recovery partition on the hard drive. Or vice-versa.

Interestingly I've noticed minor differences between the installed Windows image as shipped from the factory, and the recovery partition image, and the recovery DVD image, on various royalty OEM computers. Sometimes major differences. All three images should be the same, but I haven't yet seen a computer where they were.

Try getting Vlite and stripping down the install. If anything else it will speed up vista too

Nope, No DVD.
Just has a partition on the hard drive.

I think I'm going to upgrade to x64.

I think I got rid of the annoying pop-up window. I went and deleted a bunch of HP softs... I think that was the reminants of it.

Disabled UAC and now I can acess the files. Is it bad to leave UAC disabled? Its rather annoying.

Well strangely enough, with my Dell laptop, the Vista DVD that came with it was 99.9% clean. The only difference it had with an OEM DVD was Dell branding in the control panel. No added software. Not even wallpapers.

Can you get a virus if you leave the ethernet cable plugged in while installing vista?
Now my AVG free is acting up.
Resident Shield is not active and updating the database is disabled.
