Hi all,my girlfriend got a new computer with windows vista on it.It had vista installed but no disc of any sort,should there be one?Also it has an aol and bt icon on the desktop can anyone tell me how to get rid of them?I cant access msconfig to stop them from running.Thanks.
When you say the icons are on the desktop, do you mean the Taskbar ? The presence of an icon on the desktop isn't indicative of a running process. Have a look in Add or remove programs, they may show up there or they could simply be shortcuts to an install routine and until activated aren't doing anything. Either way, they don't limit your choice of ISP.
Because the manufacturers are sponsored by the ISPs to add them. Worst were Tiny and Time, they even tied the modem settings to their ISP, took a lot of fiddling with to unlock. Being a confirmed Vista Luddite I can't offer advice on specifics, but can only recommend trying tullies tip, check the Add/Remove possibilities and as wee eddie said, read the bumph there may be the option of burning your own Windows/setup disk and if there is it should be treated as a priority task.
