So we all know Vista is filled with glitches, updates, and glitches that come with said updates. Well, as of a few minutes ago, the little meter that used to appear when I turned the volume up and down are now gone. It won't be long now before Bill Gates takes away the sound altogether.

I haven't been getting these glitches most people are talking about. What exactly are they?

Windows fails altogether. Remember how Windows 7 is supposed to be what Vista was supposed to be? Here's what I've been dealing with all weekend:

"Windows Explorer has stopped working.
Windows is checking for a solution to the problem...
Windows Explorer is restarting..."
do something
"Windows Explorer has stopped working.
Windows is checking for a solution to the problem...
Windows Explorer is restarting..."
wait a few seconds, do something
"Windows Explorer has stopped working.
Windows is checking for a solution to the problem...
Windows Explorer is restarting..."
...etc.

I miss my Ubuntu system. If it weren't for the hardware issues I've been having in Linux, I wouldn't NEED Windows.

That's happened before when Explorer crashes. I haven't had problems with 7 yet, though, but I hear there are a few people who have. I guess all computers have drawbacks, right? Less glitches on a Mac, but few games.

Really? My Vista laptop was returned because I think the hardrive crashed, or something like that, I got a new Windows 7 laptop and I love it, haven't had any problems with it.

My point being Windows 7 hasn't turned out to be much of an improvement.

I used to have that problem as well. If you have a desktop, check to see if your speakers are plugged in. If you have a laptop, the volume bar should return the next time you turn your computer, I believe. That's how it worked with me. To be honest, I do want to get Windows 7 now, but I don't use my computer that much anymore, so it'd be pointless.

What I hate about microsoft is their shitty customer service. They outsource to India to Bob who is less understandable then a brick in a blender on full mix. I once got upset at this one guy and started eating a hamburger in spite.

Currently running windows 7, didnt have really any issues with vista, but there was a big difference once i upgraded.


Sometimes the best solution is, simply, a swift kick in the ass.

I have Windows 7.

Let's just say that while it's simply a collection of faults, it could be worse. It could be a Mac.

Someone please run a comparison check of 7 to XP.

XP is still so much better.

Honestly, I have a lot of friends that use vista and none of us ever ran into the problems that everyone talks about. Vista work's fine, but an upgrade to Windows 7 couldn't hurt.

Have you ever considered that maybe it is the user, not the system?

So I got a Vista back in 2007... or whenever they came out. than my friend actually fixed it up pretty well, worked fine. But reently I had to get it fixed... unfortunately me and my old friend really don't hang out anymore so I sent it to some guy the next town over. And he re-vista'd it! What a douche-monkey!

I have worked with 3 computer which seem relavent

Mine has XP on one hard drive, and Win7 on another
Dad's has Vista , XP and Win7... I don't know why its greedy.
My friends has Vista.

None of them have OS related problems, its not the tools, its how you use it... or break it in your case.

If you weren't a retard, you'd see this.

Never mind the fact that tons of people had to stick with XP, and that Microsoft felt the need to rush out Windows LUCKY NUMBER SEVEN CROSS FINGERS! which are both still pieces of shit.

Just download the old volume control meter from an old PC like I did. It works.
