Hazel, I'm sorry I'm so late to this! And I haven't read every single post, so sorry if this has already been mentioned!

I've had Vista for two years now. I HATED it at first and had many fits with tears over it too. Now I'm used to it though and don't mind it. A few things, let me know if you're in interested.

--There's a way to "Neuter" Vista so many of the "pretty," but memory sucking functions are turned off and it's back to more of a basic OS again.

--To run anything as an Administrator, right click on the icon and chose, "Run as Administrator."

--Directions for exporting and importing mail from Outlook to Windows Mail:

--This Vista forum was and still is VERY helpful for me!

--Firefox runs much faster than IE on Vista. You may want to install Firefox and use it for everything but your newsletters. It makes everyday browsing much easier.
No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does. --Christopher Morley
