    Everything works just fine for me when I installed Vista.

  2. You must have screwed up. There are some here who will tell you that what
    you state is impossible.

    I have no problems either.

    Here is what you do. Next time you power up your PC, after 10-15 seconds
    pull out the power cord. Try this a few times and then you'll be in good

    Your Vista will be broken-in!

    Yes, you obviously did something wrong.
    Install some flavor of Linux instead.

    If you knew as much as you think you know, you would realize that you don't
    know what you thought you knew!

    Speaking from experience? LOL

  9. Well, then I guess there is no point in Microsoft releasing updates and
    cancel any plans for a Service Pack.

    Obviously Vista is perfect and any one with a problem, created that problem
    themselves or they are just imagining there is a problem.

    You should also post your exact system specifications, down to the firmware
    and driver levels, so everyone else will know exactly what to buy to have
    the perfect Vista experience.

    What you need to do is go to a "BRAIN" shop, and buy yourself one.But, it
    will be lonely, as you don't have one now.

    I would think there would be a long line at the BRAIN shop, since lots of
    folks are missing one!

  12. And exactly what makes you say that ?

  13. Just like the birth of XP (I had no problems with it either), most of the
    people coming here are those having problems. And just like XP, I would
    think that they are either the minority or a few million have yet to show up
    and post. So far I have installed Vista on 3 machines (Dell, Gateway, and
    IBM) without a single problem. Go figure.

  14. Well, I'm sure Mick will remind me again I have no brain, but...

    How many people really use newsgroups ? I have friends and family who have
    computers for over 5+ years and had their share of problems with everything
    and they know nothing about forums or Usenet. I think the Microsoft support
    line is a better measurement of user problems then a forum or newsgroup.

    While I myself don't have any glaring problem, though I can admit some of
    the oddities I have with Vista, I can't tell if it's a problem or the way
    it's suppose to work. I'm talking namely about not getting folders to
    remember how I set them.It seems every so often that stupid file rating
    comes back on certain folders.

    But anyways, this kind of post (not yours per se, but the original poster)
    implies that there is nothing wrong with Vista and that any problem is a
    user created problem.

    But up a few post is a fix for a USB hard drive problem

    "Reliability update for the USB stack in Windows Vista

    So If I'm having this problem and maybe a few other problems (that I don't
    have in XP) and I say Vista stinks or is problematic, the diehards will tell
    me I don't know how to use Vista and that I have no brain.

    Not to pick on Richard U, but he just said he didn't have any problems with
    Vista in this thread, and then in the USB Hard drive thread, asks a fellow
    MVP for help, because he's got this problem and can't get the fix to install

    John Barnett appears to have broken from rank and file and states in the
    April 8th - Oh My God! posts with a statement like this " I actually
    believe that if Microsoft hadn't been in such a hurry to release Vista,
    Vista would have actually turned out a better product"

    So it seems those that are pro Vista hate to acknowledge there are any
    faults and those that are anti-Vista make a huge deal out of every little

    Though Mick believes I've got no brain, I do understand that it's a new OS
    and it's going to have bugs. That's why I actually don't agree with posts
    that say, 'I must have done something wrong, Vista works perfectly fine for
    me" and everyone wants to dive in and act like there are no bugs in Vista.

    We don't need to beat a dead horse about the bugs, but we can't ignore the
    elephant in the living room either
