since when has any windows tip or tutorial been helpful for fixing problems? I don't remember one case in more than 12 years I have been fiddling with PCs. so, I'll pass.

Well I don't use Vista, and don't think I would be using it NEVER!!!... I hate that OS xD...

Well that's rational...

Care to explain your reasons so they can be debunked, or are you just one of those who enjoys riding along on that trusty bandwagon?

I fixed the English issues in his original statement.
Now... So what you are saying is you have an old PC thats incapable of running Vista. Can you tell what it is like being ignorant? I hear it's bliss.

Of course it is for Vista. Why do you think they did it quietly?

XP doesn't need some stupid tool like this running in the background. Why do you think they did it quietly?

Sounds like the same major PITA as UAC?

Except I've had to reinstall XP about 3-5 times on one computer since I've owned it. I've owned Vista 1 1/2 years and except for upgrading a hard drive from 60 gb to 160 gb. Haven't had to reinstall once. (3-5 is tiny, I should have reinstalled about 2-3 years ago, but ordered my OEM copy of edirectsoftware and a bit worried about reinstalling it considering edirect wasn't legit even though Microsoft said it was when I emailed them about it.) do'h....

dang you mean I could have dropped this news over a month ago. there have even been 2 updates since it was released.
