    Vista has been really acting up on me lately to the point I've given up on
    using my main PC (where Vista is loaded). I've tried multiple times to
    restore to an earlier dates and the restore runs for a while then on the
    restart a error comes up saying the previous verison didn't load. I've also
    tried the Vista disk repair but as it runs through and completes nothing
    changes. I even tried to run the upgrade disk again but it wont complete
    As of now I can't use Outlook and some of the built ins for Vista dont even
    work when I click on them. I tried reloading Office on the PC and it'll work
    in safe mode but will not normally. Vista is unstable and stalls. My hardware
    checks out so its not the disk or any thing else. I'd love to just do a fresh
    install but I only bought the upgrade Vista and my only XP version was on the
    PC when I up graded.

    Soooo, anyone have an idea how I can reload Vista for a clean install
    without having to spend $400 for the full version?

    Kinda wishing I'd stayed with XP.....

    If you have Norton Antivirus, turn it off, then do a system restore.

  3. There should be a provision to 'return the computer to factory' setting.
    Have you contacted the manufacturer/vendor?

    I Built the PC so there's no vendor to go back to. Thanks though.
