Also it depends if your system allows for rollback as mine does not.

'so im stuck with VISTA i think its crap'

Your opinion, but is it Vista that is c..p or your PC's ability to run it.

'you dont have control over your computer'

There are many ways of regaining the control that you think you need.

'lots of things missing replaced with things like sidebar.nvida'

Not aware of things actually missing but things may well have been added that you don't like/need.

Look for the good in this exercise. You say you are stuck with it so use this opportunity to try and get the best out of Vista. You might even get to like it;-)

I think he means what I think he means, things are hidden from meddling hands in Vista. Problem is finding where they have hidden everything. Like Run box for example

I have run Vista Home since it first came out.
Admittedly it was on a new computer I had built, but no way would I go back to XP.

Vista is far superior.

Most problems are because people are resistant to change.

I remember when XP came out, most people hated it.

Now it seems it's all they want..
All the best.
