    I can't see how you could have a bios fault the post a new (current thread) with "Vista-can't remove program!"

    Unless they are two different computers, even though your specs don't change!

    The concern is that if they are two different computers (highly likely) members tend to look at your system specs (for Bios revisions and drivers, so forth) but this may be in vein, as the threads don't seem to match up.

    What type of shop are you running?
