Don't keep us in suspense.

Who is that?

Kim Kommando?

Leo LaPorte?

I need to get this guy into my Rolodex.

He said to just format the whole drive and install Even the Tech Guru" wasn't sure what to after that. I have a feeling this is going to be a nightmare.
This will not be a nightmare if you follow Greg's advice.

I believe that even Russ Limbaugh is on radio.

Greg is the expert whose recommendations we accept and recognize. For his advice, he has received a MVP from Microsoft.

If you have any questions re his procedures, then you will receive answers from him and you won't even need to put your hands on the radio to feel the computer healing.

This is what the upgrade advisor does, tells you before the install what issues you will likely have.

Change the drivers, update them.

Also it will be to your benefit to follow Greg's advice, he has helped many get Win7 installed. You can learn a lot from him.

Vista nightmare

Sorry. The guy I'm referring to is "The Tech Guy" Leo Laporte. He has his finger on the pulse of technology. Or so i've been told and read about him. He's one of a select few who are Microsoft Gold level. I just asumed that his reputation as a noted tech specialist made him an Icon in the tech world.Who the hell is Kim Kommando?

Guys on the radio have about 90 seconds to come up with a diagnosis and render advice. This thread has been going on for four days now.

Which do you think is more likely to give you good advice.

I suggest you illuminate yourself on the term "Microsoft Gold" which is a recognition given to firms that meet certain MS requirements and is only extended in a very specific area.

The term that does not imply that a person working for such a firm has any special competencies.
