    Have you tried switching to XP?

    yeah, after many many phone calls to microsoft and many many error reports they have finally aggreed to refund my money, which I was completely surprised at(but who am I to complain). I will have to wait and see if that solves the final problem or two....a faulty power cable was to blame cause of a lot of the problems I was having.

    Down with Vista...long live Rogaine
