    Thanks to this newsgroup I have restored my Vista laptop to the day it was
    shipped to me. I now have 78 updates to install and it will not
    install them. Any suggestions? I purchased this Dell laptop in 2008.
    Thanks.

    Only 78? Boy, the last time I did a restore with Vista it required about
    125 updates. Anyway, what is the problem specifically? The updates will
    not download or the updates download but do not install? Are you otherwise
    able to get online? Have you checked in your Device Manager to make sure
    that all needed drivers are in place? Just random thoughts. J

    Updates are for idiots. As long as the thing works there's no reason to
    turn
    schizophrenic and develop a lifelong complex over such a silly issue.

    I've been around since the days of FidoNet. It's these stupid newbies who
    download all this anit-spyware and virus protection shit that end up getting
    all the viruses and malware. No need for protection when you write the rules
    not follow them like me.

    I just go through the newsgroups and figure oh that looks like a good one. Next thing
    you know i'm on it. I sort of follow Kaditcha Man around. I learned just about
    everything i know from him back in the days of FidoNet. I learned it's best to learn
    from the very best in world and the K-man is just that. He was like the modern day
    co-founder of usenet etiquette and i fashioned my approach to usenet after him.

    All i know is being on the windows vista newsgroup is a lot better than having windows
    vista as an operating system. Vista is a pig! The dog's breakfast and the worst operating
    system Microsoft ever put out. Even the old versions of dos were better.

    That shit still runs on windows xp and AutoCAD is for dickweeds. If things get desperate enough
    you install windows 7 professional or ultimate and run everything in XP mode except the very
    few things that only run on windows 7. Warez is a lot easier to install on windows xp than on
    windows 7.

    I test modified operating systems but don't write them. There's a lot of

    heh heh you got him there Tony...your interrogator is canadian!
    a Bennett Street boy no less! so your bolonga sandwich is now fouled up, yeh?
    with some degree of wry amusement i have watched this string play out, waiting
    for your dawn to rise Tony. disappointed is what i am. you do not recognise the
    bait you are being fed? and one so switched on with sniffing out chuckcar!
    oh dear!
    where is chucky these days anyway...you finally run the wheels off his old convertible?
    here i see you now got a new playmate, i do hope you enjoy being seamused cos you sure
    are loving it so far! PML
    why you might even be up to joining him at his local golf club (not a member, he just
    haunts the place) to discuss the whatfors of Vista, eh? hand the rube some lessons in war3z?
    time to get the thinking cap on Tony. When you have a list figured - post it.
    I will score it for you :-D

    ...and by the way, it is 10 lines for a sig, just like the commandments, some mostly use
    eight, with "polite" being no more than four. however the RFC is prefaced with
    "SHOULD" not "MUST"
    so you are quite within your rights to go hard in scribbage...mheh heh

    ...also you have my empathy with those tossers who fall sucker to MS "upgrades".
    it is true it is the great unwashed who - with no kloo whatsoever - fall victim to their
    own repulsion of good sense.

    do carry on :)
