Brought a new laptop & ya comes pre-installed with Vista. Turning out to be the biggest screw-up from MS. I've already formatted the system a couple of times & innumerable crashes in between.
Ya, well to cut to the chase I'm stuck with it. so only option is to look for utilities that can try to improve .
Found this utility during my web crawling
check it out. pretty neat. Some of the things i liked was having multiple processes for the desktop & task manager as well as shutdown tweaks
