Last night I took a MS Survey, (I beta test for MS) and when I was done they gave me a freebie, "Microsoft PC Advisor"
wow what a cool program,
I ran it and it found 3 thing wrong with my Vista, (I thought it was running just fine) one of the things was my INTERNET connection. Well it fixed all it found wrong and wow my Vista is smokin'.
Note I have had Vista since it came out and I never turned anything off or done any hacks to it and guess what, I have had no viruses or spy-ware etc.
I have had no crashes or hangups nor the blue screen of death.
If I was to rate Vista it would rank high.
