Vista Help!

I bought a new PC a few months ago with Vista on it, and had problems since i got it.
Just wondered if anyone knew what was wrong when the explorer bar stops responding very day. I have to go on task manager and restart it. Sometimes about 2 or 3 times a day.
Does anyone know what the problem is? Help would be much appreciated


It's quite a common problem. It's called Vista. My solutions: XP, Mac or Ubuntu...

Ha, was thinking that myself

Have you got all the latest windows updates installed? Are you spyware/virus free?

Also, does this only happen on your profile or others as well presuming there is more than one profile on this machine

There is only one profile on the comp, and yeah have all my updats installed

I think its a common fault.. I have it on Vista Ultimate, I open certain applications and its game over!

XP is the way forward.. or backward. lol

Vista Service Pack 1 will address this issue.................................................

.......................... according to Microsoft customer services!

I'll wait and see.

got a copy of vista on my htpc and have to say it never falls over, slow as a slug but seems stable, try updating all the drivers
mainboard,network card,video and sound.
