Both my kids have Vista laptops.
I'm a dyed-in-the-wool XP bloke, and hate having to touch their computers because Vista is so bloody difficult to handle.
For example: I thought I had finally thwarted the very annoying "Are you absolutely, positively, 100% sure you really, really, really want...

I have a laptop with Vista ultimate on it. Each time I try to run System Restore it goes through all the motions, restarts and then tells me it has been unsuccessful but without any detail. Does anybody know anything that might help me to locate a fault?

In Documents I have various folders. One folder 'Business' contains various documents and spreadsheets. The folder views are, however, those relating to media. So I can 'rate' my documents and I can try and 'slideshow' them but I can't get a view showing details.
For the umpteenth time I have had to reload Vista
I have all my files backed up on a remote hard drive.
I can't get my PC to see the drive when it is going through the restore files routine.
It has already backed up to the drive since the re-install, but it just keeps saying the location...
Howdy... quick question,
I need to transfer some files from my old MacBook Pro to my new one, but Vista's User Access Controls won't let me get into my own files when I mount the old laptop in target mode...
Any advice on how I can transfer the files? I've tried elevating myself to admin and...
Im currently in sunny Spain and using my sisters 6month old laptop. The laptop has been set into Spainish when the laptop was new but we wish to convert it into English.
