you are nuts. I have been running Vista since the day it came out. Not ONE hiccup or anything.

Did you have a unstable on on your computer. I had to rienstall because my ram borked up my first install. I now have 64 running and its doing fine. All the thing syou listed work jsut fine. If I had problems getting a program to run just run it in XP mode for that program and it works jsut fine.
Vista needs at least 1 service pack..not sure it will be 'right' though even after that (Ive used it since it was 'alpha' & tried Ultimate again recently). In my opinion its still beta software & has a 'memory leak' that MS need to patch..

And while were on the subject, there seems to be very few updates out for vista since its release compared to xp over the same time frame?
I'm not having luck with torrents either. Anyone know a good way to get these working with Vista?

Possibly a blocked port? How to unblock via vista?
