    What could windows possibly be doing that slows it down so much? First off,
    my computer is an absolute beast. Core duo @ 3gz. 2 gigs of ram. DUAL 8800GTX
    videos cards (in sli configuration). evga 680i motherboard. Super fast hard

    I download metal combat frommicrosoft. The setup file is 1.5gb. It took 13
    minutes between the time i clicked teh file and the time it actually popped
    up the consent popup. To copy files from one place to another, takes many
    time longer than it did on xp. Does anyone know whats going on so that i can
    better troubleshoot things? WHat does windows have to do that makes it take
    so long?

    Welcome to the bloated world of Vista! I tried some copies and timed them
    between XP and Vista, and Vista took about 20% longer to copy files.
    I don't think the programmers at Micro$quish are into tight and efficent
    code. Otherwise the OS would still ship on a CD !

    Wow! We actually agree on something.
