Just finished setting up the new HP lappy i got for the missus. It came with Vista Business Edition and to be honest im actually quite pleased with it. I always said to people to avoid Vista atm coz of incompatibility issues etc etc... but playing with it over the past days it seems quite ok, not that much different than XP tbh just a different, nicer looking and smoother front end. I dont know what i was expecting really !
Anyway i do have a few things that im unsure about, and not having any sort of clue i thought id ask you guys first :-) The main one i have a niggle with is the constant confirmation windows that pop up every time i wanna do something like open a rar, save a file, change a setting, etc... it seems like i have to click confirm, then click another confirm. Can be quite a pain in the bum. Is there any way to make the OS a little less security concious so that i dont have to confirm every little thing i do, and i mean everything ?
Secondly seeing as i didnt get an install disk for the Vista... can i use the serial number on the back of the machine to use on other machines around the house if i find a copy of business floating around somewhere. I presume not and that its a single license... but with it work on an intranet going through a single IP gateway to access the net ? Maybe a stupid question as my brain is fried from setting up wireless network all day and configuring the machine (PS antivirus's and Nero do not like Vista!)... but surely Vista doesnt recognise machines on a mac level ?
Lastly any1 know of any good recommendations for Vista stuff - tweaks, links to getting the best out of it, themes, etc ? Any help most appreciated :-)
