Also, I ran windows update manually.....it had 3 optional updates, one of which was for my wireless device. It didn't appear in the driver update. The audio driver failed because it installed an older version so I rolled it back.

Then I found this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928152/en-us

I had already changed that setting so it didn't affect me. Regardless, the wireless appears to be working now. 500k/s downloading the new itunes, compared to 300 BYTES/s earlier in the day.

It means you have to put your computer on a ladder, I guess.<img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

Dunno what to tell you, I have had none of the hardware issues you're describing... all my gear worked either out of the box, or after installing up-to-date drivers from the hardware vendors. What kind of NIC are you using? Granted, I'm using onboard LAN--I abandoned 802.11 long ago--the connection was inconsistent ALWAYS.

Also, the warnings can be canceled by disabling user account control. It's under User Settings.

Only problems I've had with Vista so far were:

-Proper Realtek audio drivers weren't available until April, so I was stuck using my audigy 2 value (and creative's ass-tacular sounding drivers) for three months.

-Norton AV 2007 caused random memory leaks that could only be solved by hard power down. Solved by removing Norton and installing free Avast! AV.

-Photoshop CS2 ran very slowly when creating new documents.

NOD32 for the win.

that sounds more like a disk fragmentation problem than an OS one.

I'd like to say, not to sound like a pro-microsoft, that many bugs are caused by the hardware of the computer, and Windows has nothing to do with it. I'm not saying that Windows is flawless, but we shouldn't blame Microsoft everytime a bug happens.
