The laptop would NOT work, so called Dell, who told us that our laptop would ONLY run with Vista, so we reinstalled it.
That was 2 years ago, and the Dell machine finally just QUIT (I'd gotten a Blue Screen almost every day, sometimes several times a day).
Pull the slider all the way down close all windows.
You will likely get a prompt to restart before the setting takes effect. install all programs that you were having difficulty with and then again Open your UAC and return the slider to the middle setting.
I will scan very fast for Malware and Viruses and can be used in conjunction with any other scanners that you have. As to the Apple comment, there are some that are upset about the change from Power PC chips to Intel or even from the mighty Motorola 68K line.
I've found a few machines that will not run Windows 7 at all. Anyone that thinks changing horses will solve this issue will only find themselves with more saddle sores.
Typically I haveabout 19-20 updates that will not install. Please be as detailed as possible when providing a solution. Things work better when your machine has been streamlined.
It took me three days of repeatedly downloading when the OS finally stabilized and would confirm that it updated itself. The screen is barely visible (same oil) but the OS is still stable after three or more years We uninstalled Windows Vista on my Dell Inspiron 1720 at the suggestion of Microsoft and then installed Windows 7.Running defrag is advised considering that your computer is not new but my clients lately, especially on brand new OEM desktops.SP1 hosed one of them so bad, it had to be returned to the store, and the second one had to be worked on by Redmond to fix these update issues.And to offer proof, I am currently on a Vista machine that is working perfect on a Lenovo Think Pad. There is nothing wrong with Windows Vista, it had its problems when it was first released, those have been ironed out a long time ago, Vista is now a robust and fast operating system, I have been using Vista Home Premium every day on my computer for the last three years and I have had no problem with it whatsoever, it is reliable, it doesnt crash it doesn't freeze up.I have used every Windows OS since windows 3.1 and I know for a fact there has never been a Windows OS prior to Windows Vista that was as reliable, and robust as Vista, I dont reboot my computer for weeks at a time, sometimes months and if it wasnt for updates requireing reboots, it would probably be even longer.
