  3. Have you tried rolling back to a previous restore point?

    Well first of all, your CPUs running at "100% half of the time" will not
    "burn them out", so calm down.

    If SP1 won't install, why do you need to uninstall it? What exactly is
    the problem. More details, please.

    Alias, the self appointed jackass troll of this group, will be along shortly
    to NOT help you.

    restore?Thanks anyway

    BOB
    The problem is , this things in my face when i switch off "Configuring
    updates do not switch off computer" then when i switch on "Installing sp1 3
    of 3 0% " But it's not done it's "Pending" it just goes on and on in a
    vicious circle. And dont forget my poor old CPU'S They'll be worn out before
    me! CHEERS

    But it isn't normal, is it?
    SP1 won't install, of course!
    If the OP really wants to solve his Vista problem, he will nuke Vista
    and install Ubuntu. Ubuntu, a free Open Source operating system without
    the hassles of a POS like Vista, can be obtained from http://www.ubuntu.com/

    Again, don't worry about the CPUs. They will be fine.

    If I was in your situation I would boot my Vista install DVD and do a Repair
    Install.

  9. The chat support is horrible. I log on and get connected with an agent, he
    receives my first or second message and then it fails. Tried two times.
    Whatever chat software they are using, needs to be changed. It's very
    frustrating.

    Ubuntu won't do any good for anybody. It will just annoy the user. If he
    has an issue with Vista, he can reinstall then upgrade to SP1 and if he
    still has issues he can use XP. Telling someone to use Ubuntu is pretty
    damn stupid. Ubuntu is for geeks who like to tinker and Alias who can't
    figure out what to do with a computer anyway.

    Now go attend to your "3 companies"! That should keep you busy for the next
    4 minutes.

    newsgroup looking for a chance to reveal his sour grapes

    You must have retention problems. I have told you many times that I not
    only installed Ubuntu but it didn't take me very long to figure out that
    Ubuntu was just a TOY OS for geeks. To get the "heavy lifting" done and
    real work done, I need a REAL OS like Windows.

    Now, try and remember this, if you can't print it out so next time you say
    that I'm too stupid to install Ubuntu, you can look at the post and realize
    that Alias is too stupid to remember. Oh yea, that is Just FYI

    And one more thing. Before you respond with, "I can't remember what
    everyone does", well, that response won't hold water. Your goal is to
    pester me and Frank so you DO remember.

    Liar, you were all over the Ubuntu newsgroup whining about how you
    couldn't install Ubuntu.

    Go here, download the full standalone install;
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...6d-5ebb-413b-89c9-cb3d06d12674&DisplayLang=en

    Boot into Safe Mode (F8) and start the install from there.

    I've used this method on three different Vista machines,
    two desktops and one laptop..... it has worked flawlessly.

    Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. I could install it but Ubuntu was just a lame piece of
    junk.

    So your doctor said to stop running 10 miles a day. What you probably mean
    is that the doctors think you are too dangerous to be outisde and have you
    confined to the institution.

  18. Direct quote from Alias on his first Linux experience:

    "Hmmm, more complicated than I thought. Which one do you recommend that
    doesn't have so many driver problems, MP3 problems and can import mail
    from OE?"

    This post is from almost two years ago. Thanks to the good folks what
    use Ubuntu, that was cleared up a long time ago.

    No, that isn't the reason, your lame imagination notwithstanding.
