  • Your best bet is to try a clean installation of vista.  I would recommend you to do an upgrade of vista because it will complicate things.

    Try it and let me know.

  • So far, I have a chance to review your problem but it may sound like a program wrote when you first downloaded the beta to version of Windows Vista.  Microsoft has just released the second version of Windows Vista entitled release candidate 1 where there's all the bug fixes has been patched. You may want too try downloading that before it becomes unavailable. In the meantime, can you please give me a brief description of your computer system and I'll try to further evaluate your problem.
