Windows 7: General Comments-Windows Vista

Windows Vista
General Comments-Windows Vista


I rent a computer in a clothing store in Hollywood,California,U.S.A. This has been going on for about 2 1/2 years. But,recently the best computer (and the 4 others) were overhauled....some kind of routine re-formatting due to too many people using "porno" sites (which infected the machines with viruses.)

My favorite machine had Windows XP. But,when re-formatted,that became Vista. I don't like the way the files are shown on Vista (vertical instead of horizontal) and also,Vista is way too slow.

Also,suddenly I could no longer use the NCH "Express Burn" software....I now have to burn discs using the inbuilt Windows "autoplay" feature. But I can't use the 3rd option,because this produces a silent disc (don't ask me about codecs and audio drivers,because I can't handle the higher tech stuff.) Not using Windows DVD Maker.

Only "Burn a DVD data disc using Windows Media Player" or burn a playable (video DVD)
by "Burning files to Windows".

Just thought you'd like my comments on Windows. A great PC system (I don't understand Mac at all but Bill Gates should have left well enough (XP) alone.

Vista has earned itself a bad reputation

I was a big lover of XP until Windows 7 arrived (Loved 7 from the beta releases), i still support XP heavily but really wouldn't like to use XP as my main system again

There is also a dedicated Vista forum here -
