    I have premium installed x 86 (awaiting x64 bit disk), it is very slow even
    on my high spec system. Why is it so slow? some programs hang for ages until
    they fully open.

    You have something else going on in your computer then. Is your computer
    virus and spyware free? Was it before you installed Vista?

    Vista is quicker, at least it "feels" that way. If your computer is "clean"
    you may have a bad driver (do free scan at www.driveragent.com to see). Or
    you may be running a "not for Vista" program in the background. Did you
    uninstall all programs that Windows Upgrade Advisor mentioned could have
    issues with Vista?

    Anyway, without specific details about your system and what you did before
    installation to prepare, folks can only guess what might be happening.
    Which, with my limited knowledge, have done.

    Just tested DriverAgent on my primary desktop. Interesting tool,
    except for the $29.99 yearly subscription fee. Indicated that I had
    7 devices with out of date or as it says "Bad" drivers(?). Out of the
    seven only one was actually below the latest release. It does show
    a posting date for their "Best" driver. When I have time, I'll have
    to check the vendor sites and see if the available 'dated' updates
    can be located.

    Anyway thanks for posting the link, I can see where that might be
    a helpful tool to inventory driver versions.
