Default Re: Can your computer run Windows Vista? and what version?

Yeah, I love how they refined the search within the OS. Definately faster and easier. The search in XP (sorry Dog...I loved you) took FOREVER. It also tended to crash Windows Explorer on me. Not anymore!

As for Anti-Virus, I'm using AVG Free Edition. Completely compatible with Vista. As for Nero, I never tried, but I need a DVD ripping software soon. Got some new movies from Netflix coming.

I'm going to see if I can get my hands on Norton Antivirus Corporate edition 10.2. It's not a resource hog like the regular Norton Antivirus and especially their suite of software.

My wireless adapter did the same thing and it still works. I don't know why Vista sees it like that. I'm sure yours will work too.

It said business was the best, but the only issue it found for ultimate was that I didn't have a dvd burner...but I have a dvd reader so I don't see why I would need a burner...

Yeah, I had to install Vista compatible drivers for my LAN port before I could get internet access.
