    As has been mentioned before the most likely culprit of IE7 stability and performance issues are poorly behaved addons.

    I use vista on my primary machine and wouldn't dream of going back to XP

    I have enjoyed Vista but when my wife is always complaining abotu it crashing or not working correctly its time to take a look at going back to what is was running and not crashing...

    Checking hardware configuration.  Yes I have disabled virus protection when troubleshooting the problems without changes

  • Frustrated w/ Vista thinking about going back to XP

    Good morning,

    I saw an earlier post about someone removing Vista nad going back to Vista and someone mentioned posting concrete problems w/ Vista instead of just trying to jump on the bandwagon of Vista Sucks.

    So here is why on the main computer at home I'm thinking about going back to Vista, or at least sick of trying to troubleshoot....

    My computer is a Dell, Pentium D w/ 2 Gigs of RAM.  Currently I don't have the Video Card to run full Aero, but that's fine w/ me....

    Anyways here is the list of issues I'm sick of dealing w/

    1.  IE7 crashing:  My wife uses the computer a lot and when she is on various sites, Facebook, some chatboards, Snapfish, Flickr IE7 will freeze and stop responding.  The troubleshooter doesn't list any specific problems or steps to resolve this problem.  My wife just wants to do her webmail, chat on her chat boards, and check pictures people post.

    2.  USB drives stop responding:  I have my music collection on a 120 GIG usb drive and want to listen to music.  Media Player stops repsonding 9 times out 10, mostly between changing songs.  While the music keeps playing

    3.  iTunes freezes:  I have the latest version of iTunes, downloaded it via the Apple Updater and every time I plug-in my iPod, my wife's iPod the application stops responding, probally linked to problem #2

    None of these were problems before when I was on XP and starting to wonder if I shouldn't have upgraded.  I've downloaded drivers from Dell, made sure my system was completly up to date, ran anti-virus scans and anti-spyware scans and spent about a month and half trying to troubleshoot all the problems.

    Anyone got any hints or suggestions for me or should I just format and start back w/ XP that was working?

  • Student tasered @ Kerry event - WTF?

    So someone resists areest, doesn't listen to the cops when they tell the kid to stop and the kid gets tasered.... whats wrong with that??? I've seen and heard about 4 different videos and frankly I think the kid gets what is comming to him. Now granted I think the kid didn't need to escororted out by the cops in the first place, but when an office tells you to stop and you don't then you ressit the arrest... well

    (Note: IANAL) Well, the cost of doing business in that particular market may go up. You are a customer, it's time to go out and celebrate Smiley
    I don't think the EU or whoever said the goal is to see the decrease understands the Windows "Culture" that has developed around things. People have jobs that support the infrastructure who recommend the infrastructure, people build products for the infrastructure, people support products that are built for the infrastructure, etc...

  • MS loses EU Appeal

    Hypothetical here: I work for a large company that uses Office/Exchange/XP, this decision doesn't affect what I have currently purchased or may not even affect what I will purchase as my infrastructure is designed around Microsoft products. An example: The company uses Exchange for email, uses Active Directory for directory information including group policy, uses Windows XP for the desktop, has staff for Windows support, both Network Admins, Desktop Admins, Helpdesk staff, etc... How does this decision then change that? So now, if companies don't start switching to alternatives, does the EU then "regulate" MS again?
