Alright well, here are the issues with Vista.


1) I can not remove 'features from Vista. Not services but bonus software, extra applications, etc.

2) Notepad and Wordpad hang for a brief second when trying to close or open files.

3) Network and Sharing Center do not correctly show the network path/abilities to share media.

4) I am sure I will run into something else, and will update it accordingly when I do.

No one knows how to fix this stuff?

I now know that the Network Center thing is due to a service, so that can be taken out.

I have run sfc /scannow to try to fix any damaged system files.

I am sure some people know how to fix this.

I had most of these problems. My Network and Sharing Center wouldn't show the detected wireless networks which was pissing me off since I take my lappy with me to university and I couldn't do anything without wireless. Plus, my Microsoft Office wasn't working on Vista and had to re-install it dozen of times without luck. I solved these problems re-installing Vista =\\.

You mean special features part of Windows? Did you try Control Panel>Programs and Features>Turn Windows Features On or Off ?

Did you disable Windows Search/Index? Untick "Index this drive for fast search" in your drive properties?

Yes, I went through the steps to try to remove the Windows Special Features. I checked the Error Reports, and it says that it just simply can't change them.

Yes, they are all unticked.

I got the Network Center to show up again.

Windows Dreamscene and Tablet Functions. Yes UAC is completely disabled.

I ended up reinstalling, because there was too many issues (generally slow, even though Vista is supposed to be faster then XP).

The issue was fixed though.
