Yeah but the only problem is that if I turn it off, it doesn't do useful things. It's not that annoying yet, but if it does annoy me I'll turn it off.

Does winpatrol work with vista? that's similar to UAC except less annoying. If it works I might give it a shot.

Oh yeah, plus I can't get my wireless printer set up on Vista yet. Maybe I'm just doing something wrong.

I don't see anything wrong with UAC.
Just hold CTRL+A or CTRL+C when you know you have to.

When I first got Vista I did an upgrade over XP MCE, and it took about 20 minutes, I did it also on my dads HP DV1000 laptop and it took a few hours, and I had a lot more crap.
Since I heard clean installs are faster either way I did a clean install, also in 20 minutes.

Vista is great, but it still has software compatibility problems with xp, etc. I have vista Ultimate 64bit and I still haven't installed it yet because vista is so demanding on the hardware, and I don't care to upgrade my cpu, mobo, and memory for it when i won't get that drastically increase in performance.

I have Vista on my laptop and have yet to experience any issues..
I like the operating system, but did immediately disable UAC.
