    Why is Vistta so slow at simple tasks, like copying 1 folder to another, I
    have a high spec machine dual core 4GB ram, but I point at a Lan folder and
    the circle appears 1minute later , i right click it again , circle appears
    wait......... ahh! click copy... go to place where want paste it and again
    circle appears round and round..... right click .... wait....... paste.

    How crap !!! please sort it out. Whats the point making it slower and
    worse than previous versions. I am going back to XP until you can sort out
    simple task performance.

    thanks

  2. There are definitely known issues with copying, and at least one of them is
    due to some "differential copy" flag being set somewhere...you might search
    and see if you can find how to turn that off. There's also issues with
    networking, especially wireless, and I don't think that's been fixed yet.

    4Gb of RAM? If you're running 32-bits, that's too much - I don't think it
    can use more than 3 and it may run slower with 4 than with 2 or 3. If
    64-bits, then 4Gb is usable.

    Did you load Vista yourself or buy a new PC with it? If the latter, chances
    are your PC came with sufficient junkware to slow it _way_ down...uninstall
    what you can, complain to the manufacturer about what remains.

    Turn off Remote Differential Compression

    Remote Differential Compression measures the changes in files over a network
    to transfer them with minimal bandwidth rather than transferring an entire
    file that has previously been moved. By constantly checking for file
    changes, this service can hinder system performance.
    To disable this service:

    Open Control Panel
    Switch to Classic View
    Select Program Features
    Choose Turn Windows features on and off
    Scroll down and uncheck Remote Differential Compression

  4. As all of us must know that the vista has some internal software problems with the applets the introduced in vista. So there is an option to edit your vista to make 100% compatible for your PC. For more details, goto:
