    Can somebody please explain how to turn off all the stupid "you don't have
    permission to do this" warnings in Vista? I am the only person who uses my
    computer, I installed all the software on it, and I don't need persmission
    from anybody thank you.

    I just tried to run Microsfot Word "detect and repair" feature, and after
    starting to run, it told me that I don't have permission to access some
    folder in system32. So I manuallyfixed the permissions on that, nad then
    there wasn another, then another etc.

    MS makes a product and strong arms OEMs to support it and you think the
    only reason is to make it cheaper for the consumers!? Man, are you naive.

    It certainly is a scam. Microsoft wrote the bloatware and is unable to
    support it, yet they want some OEM to support it? The source code is
    CLOSED, so it's impossible for anyone to support Vista, but Microsoft. And
    as I've stated, even Microsoft is having a hard time supporting Vista
    properly.

    Just look at all the problems users have had when a new update comes down.
    Some users are reporting that they can't even get back into Vista after an
    update. How in the hell can an OEM possibly support this shit when it's
    Microsoft delivering these "updates"? All an OEM can do is suggest that
    their customers re-install the original provided with the computer. Of
    course, all Microsoft's "updates" are then lost along with the user's data
    and newly installed apps. It's a COMPLETELY idiotic system from the getgo.

    These OEM versions exist, not for technical reasons, but simply marketing
    reasons. Microsoft is interested in getting Vista on as many computers as
    it can, so through the convoluted and idiotic OEM marketing scheme it does
    this. Once on a computer, Microsoft hopes to milk the consumer further by
    selling them other Microsoft crapware.

    Yes, the OEM prices are lower. But those prices are probably what Windoze
    should be priced at. The Retail versions are insanely over-priced, making
    the OEM prices look like a bargain. Again, it's all about marketing and
    screw the end-user. That's how Microsoft operates.

    Cheers.

    Could be this naivety by some around here might be in direct proportion to
    the amount of Microsoft stock they hold? The whole Microsoft marketing
    machine is a scam and everybody knows it, from the OEMs to anyone with half
    a brain. (I exclude Francis in this category ... he doesn't know shit).

    Cheers.

    Because they want to "own" their own computers. When you finally get a
    computer and stop using your mommy's computer, you might understand this
    concept.

    Cheers.

    The big OEMs get bulk licensed OSs at substantial discounts. It's a very
    common business practice allowing vendors/retailers to get a larger share of
    a product's profit margin. That's why the OEMs have to provide the end-user
    customer support for it. Nothing stopping them from paying full-pop for the
    OS licenses and passing the support for it back to Microsoft. For that
    matter the only reason the OEMs put any OS or software on PCs at all is
    because that's what most customers want and have come to expect. Time was
    the OS and any software titles were added cost extras.

    them it's their way or the highway.

    Alias,

    Sorry my friend but you are wrong. MS does not strong arm any OEM, Partner
    and anyone else selling their products. Are you or have you ever been a OEM?
    if so then you would know that it was and is the competitive market that
    brought on OEM's to purchase and support Windows. I think and I could be
    wrong it was Packard Bell who first approached MS about buying and
    supporting their software at a reduced price to get a jump on the Computer
    market then of course not long after everyone jumped on the wagon. You use
    to buy a system and pretty much Windows was all you got, today you buy one
    and it's loaded with junk, why? because advertisers pay OEM's to put their
    software on these systems thus reducing once again the price. It's all about
    competition and nothing to do with MS.

    False, false, false! MS tells OEMs it's MS' way or the highway. I know
    because I checked with three different computer chain stores.
