    I don't use Vista often, but when I do I often need to shift some files
    about, typically with a USB stick - Snag is it's painfully slow, this is the
    case with a number of USB sticks and card readers.

    I know it's a Vista thing (at least in some cases) because if I boot my own
    Vista machine from a live CD with another OS I can copy the files between
    the HDD and the USB stick -much- faster. USB IDE drives in a caddy seem
    okay, it's just SSDs that cause a problem.

    Have googled/Asked/etc and looked through the threads on this group but
    couldn't find any reference to this one.

    So, what do I turn off to get Vista up to speed?
