Vista is so unstable

    Hi, I'm a university student. I have spent the last 10 hours summarising a
    terms work for my rapidly approaching exams. I was sure to save my files
    every half hour or so, thinking that that would be enough to not lose my work
    in the event of a malfunction. However, I pressed save and my entire summary
    of work simply disappeared! Fair enough. I wouldn't be so angry, but this is
    the second time it has happened. The first time (on my previous computer), it
    completely erased 7 weeks of work. So, I got a new computer, and guess what?
    It has happened again. Not only that, but a BRAND NEW computer has had the
    blue screen of death twice in the last month. Before it died at 6 months of
    age, my last computer had the blue screen regularly (at least 3 times a
    week). This has never happened on any of my other computers before that. This
    loss of work has also happened to 2 of my friends. I have also noticed, that
    anything that makes the hard drive work hard, also results in blue screen.
    The only link that I can see between the 2 computers, is vista.

    I also find, that my computer has to think hard about all the appearance
    graphics and animations that have been put on Vista to make it look nice. I
    have simply ditched the niceties and opted for performance, even though my
    desktop now looks like window 95. What did I get? Blue screen. A friend of
    mine has had the same computer for the last 6 years, running XP, and has a
    perfectly stable platform and has had no problems with the operating system
    (or hardware) whatsoever. Vista is easily the most unstable platform the
    Microsoft has ever invented, it is a big step backwards from XP. Why do you
    think that no business will change from XP? Too much hassle. I'm pretty sure
    they would rather use DOS than Vista because it is more reliable.

    Also, Vista has compatibility issues with nearly every piece of software and
    hardware ever invented. Was it just made so that we have to buy new software
    and hardware as soon as we get a new computer to boost Microsoft's profits?

    As well as this, user account control is the most useless program. Why does
    it ask you if you want to open the program, or if you trust it, WHEN YOU JUST
    CLICKED ON IT!!!!!????

    Vista also requires massive amounts of hardware just to run the program, and
    it is still slower than all previous versions of Windows. I have a dual core
    2.7 Ghz processor and it is still slow.

    So, if anyone else feels the same way about Vista (total rubbish), then
    please add to the discussion.

    Yours sincerely,

    A severely annoyed Vista user.

    Whatever you do, you shouldn't cross the street as you might get ran over
    due to your bad luck.

    contracted some sort of virus or malware. This is
    your fault and not Vista's.

    What application were you working in?

    While Vista can be bad, it shouldn't eat your files. How have you
    looked for them?

    If you know which folder and path you 'save to' you could change the
    sort order in Windows Explorer to "last modified" and that should make
    the last worked on files bubble to the top of the list. If not, try
    hitting refresh.

    Have you tried using search to locate the files? Just click the Start
    Orb, type the file name, wait a few seconds and Vista should start
    building a list.

    I'll share a funny story. Some guy years ago I used to work with was
    working on a project that involved a large complex Lotus Spreadsheet.
    Like you, he would save his work religiously every few minutes. To be
    real sure, after he finished a month's data he would save again. He
    made one dumb, but common mistake. He kept saving his work with the
    same file name, over and over in effect overwriting his monthly data
    for several years (what he really wanted was monthly figures) so all
    he ended up with was his last ten minutes or so of work. Ouch!

    He did this after:

    Actually he would risk getting RUN over. You see Mr. Arnold, the event
    didn't happen yet. You used 'ran over' implying the event already
    happened.

    You wouldn't say you're going to ran over somebody or would you?

    I sure hope there aren't any English teachers present, so much bad
    English spoken here. <giggle>

    A real shame it didn't happen to your message :>(
    I wonder why Vista worked this time and not for your summary of work?
    If you feel the need to vent, climb on top of your house, you will find it
    there.
    If you have a problem, ask and there's plenty of help here.

    Albright <giggling>? What is wrong with him? What can be said about the
    old man? The old man has nothing else to do, the *old fart*. The old
    *clown* sits in his wheelchair at his computer and reads every posts
    made in the NG. He does it everyday 365 a year. He is totally
    *ridiculous* and old. He should take a sleeping pill for once in his
    sorry old over the hill and tired life. Maybe, several sleeping pills
    might help him and a couple of Prozacs too, to easy his *troubled* mine.

    The old man is a sad human being. He has got rings in his nose, and his
    nose is wide open in the NG on everyone. When will the old man
    check-out? When will he check-out?

    I think that the one who designed Vista is a moron. Vista installs lots
    of eye-candies and turns it on by default. On my machine, a
    newly-install Windows Vista x64 eats me 900 MB RAM at the time the
    system is ready for use. It also installs lots of useless features by
    default but Ubuntu only installs the core utilities.
    The protection of critical processes provided by the task manager is
    totally lost in Vista. I tried to kill some processes by the task
    manager in Vista, when I killed the csrss.exe, the system got BSOD
    immediately but it never happened in Windows 2003 or any NT older than that.
    I was UTTERLY disappointed with Vista when I first used it in August
    2006. Now, I haven't changed my mind and use Windows XP/2003 as long as
    possible and use Windows 2000/Vista as my second (backup) Windows
    system. I think that Windows Vista is worse than Windows Me and it
    contains more mistake than Windows Me. I wish that Microsoft will
    realise this problem one day and make Windows 7 as simple as possible.

    If your PC died after 6 months then it is obvious the hardware was bad.

    I'm a system engineer and I'll tell you right now that your problems sound
    like bad hardware period.

  14. In a way you are right, but then Windows Me was a very minor update in
    comparison to Vista.

    If you like your old operating system, then by all means use it, ... at
    least as long as you can. Don't fret, be happy.

  16. And what did the manufacturer(s) of these computers have to say when
    you contacted them for warranty support of what is clearly defective
    hardware?

    Can't imagine how you'd think earlier machines' having functioned
    properly would have any possible bearing on the reliable of your most
    recent machines. You're clearly not taking a Logic or Critical Thinking
    classes.


    Another clear indication that your computer(s) have sub-standard
    components.


    You're trying to run Vista on a 6-year-old (that's 3 generations, in
    computer terms) computer and are surprised that you're having problems?


    Not when installed on compatible hardware.


    Where'd you get that absurd idea?

  17. Wow, Bruce's crystal ball is really cooking tonight!

    Hey, can you look again and see what Bill Gates had for supper?
    You jumping to conclusions IS logical? You fanboy clowns are all like.
    It's never ever Microsoft's fault come hell or high water. It could be
    hardware related but the FACT is you have no idea. Still that never
    stops you from repeating the party line like some trained parrot.
    You get paid to be a Microsoft shill?

  19. I would agree that vista and most Microsoft software do have a lot of
    problems!!

    However, I would still give Vista some time.
    I would rather evaluate each issue and find solutions, discuss/report in
    forums/discussion groups.
    Most of the time, I do find a solution!

    I can afford to do this. Being an IT Professional, my profile demands me to
    be ready for all new technologies!

    Also, I enjoy it!!
