Someone told me that you can downgrade Vista Ultimate to Home Premium? If so,how do you do it?

Sorry you where misinformed,there is no possible way to downgrade the os without a reformat first.

Why would you want to downgrade ?

I have vista Ultimate on my laptop and it is an absolute nightmare, slow, constantly freezing, then crashing. And periodically the system reboots itself for no apparent reason. I have Homwe Premium on my new desktop (64 bit,too) and it is absolutely brilliant.

Then as a starter ...remove any addons / Check MSCONFIG and reduce the startup programs / Run Ccleaner / Check in Uninstall a program for any unwanted programs.

Also run your AntiVirus program in safemode as well as running Malwarebytes in safemode.

Vista is resource hungry - is the spec of the laptop up to Vista?
