  1. Hi Guys and Gals.., first time to this forum. Looking to learn a bit about why I'm having so many problems with a Home version of Vista. And in the process hopefully be able to share my knowledge of Software-As-a-Service (Saas) will others.

    I participate in many other forums, mostly motorsport, my passion, so feel free to PM me if you have any question.

    Thanks !

    Ahhh Phil, how to say this, errr your problem is that you are running Vista :p. Just kidding, because of Microsoft and it's kinks I make my living. I havent posted my first yet and while browsing these posts couldnt help but make a joke about Vista. Too easy, I know.

    Thanks Marlon.., so I guess i should guest go ahead and reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows ?? Or do you recommend downgrading to Vista ?

    I have Vista on other machines and things are running really fast. I love Vista although MS did piss me off royally after I signed up for their free trial back in 03 - 04, whenever Vista came out.. The free trial upgraded your OS but if you chose not to go with Vista there was no way to go back to your old OS !! Not sure if you remember this or not.

    Anyway, thanks for the help. Also.., do you help individuals or companies with IT problems ?

    We help the individual signed up member, for his computer or even the whole companies computers (an excellent example of this would be "networking"

    P.S. Yes I remember the original Vista upgrade and no turning back, many were upset (and still are :) )
