I have Windows 7 Home premium 64bit. Just wondering why my C: Drive is called "Vista64".

You can set your own name to it. Right click in and select 'rename'. By default it should be called "Local Disk".

I knew I could rename it. Just wondering why MS had that as a default name. Thanks bro.

Its entirely possible that it was the name on a previous installation or thats what the OEM set it as. We all know that people at OEM manufactures can sometimes not be the brightest.

Microsoft themselves though, by default, have the name set as 'Local Disk' on a fresh install with nothing effecting it.
