The Vista Machine Premimum machine is down for the count. Software stopped working including and not limited to AVG anti-virus, Windows installer, Windows Defender. The Vista software is soo crappy that I needed to find a MicroSoft drivers, to get a MicroSoft Optical 1000 mouse to work. Vista won't even reconize, a MicroSoft mouse, how pathetic is that, did I mention it took Vista 20 minutes to install the drivers for the MicroSoft mouse (OMG). I don't have the luxury of restoring this machine, as even with the disks, the options are greyed out.
So, I have this powerhouse machine with the crappiest OS I have ever seen, worked with.
Spent 1 month on this machine trying to fix all the stupid Vista problems (and windows patches stopped 1 year ago). All software is bought and legal. I have all but given up on Vista, and will stick to XP which works. Even bought a new machine and specificially purchased a copy of XP, to scrub Vista from the Machine. Yet that machine is still there, and haunting as nothing in the Vista OS wants to work. And repairing or restoring the Vista Machine has been a complete nightmare, not even in the ball park of Easy.
