Got vista on new laptop but need to resolve a few things:-
1. How do I turn narrator off, which loads at startup

2. What is the name of the program which tells you when an e-mail has been opened (tag something) and will it work with vista

3. How do I get rid of those annoying ads on this forum

TIA RT

1 > start type MSCONFIG and select startup then untick Narrator and ok.

2 > Not sure what you mean,sorry

3 > I use Firefox with Javascript disabled,for those pages that need Javascript i use IEtab click here

3. Keep Internet Explorer and download IE7Pro. One of the best free ad blockers available!

2. In Windows Mail options you can get a 'Read Receipt' to indicate when your email to some one has been opened. Is that what you mean?

2) click here No support for Vista it seems.

Hadn't heard of that one but it doesn't look an awful lot different to the Windows Mail read receipt,which should, hopefully, be of use to Red Tommy until msgtag is Vista compatible.

I think you mean MSGTAG, unfortunately it doesn't work in Vista
