I am by no means a Vista expert. My love is XP, but bought a Vista machine thinking I might need to learn how it works - for work. It runs ok now but I don't use it for much.
Here are some of the articles/links I have saved while working with Vista issues. Maybe one of them can help you or someone you know.
Good luck with Vista.
***Also note for anyone ready to buy a new pc...Dell outlet still offers XP loaded with Vista licenses on many models - I recommend that rather than buying the "yucky" Vista.
