yes , good luck and perserverance seems to be required to upgrade to VISTA !
i now have MCAFEE re-installed but took off the printer since it seems to present integration problems - even though i obtained an updated driver .
the lexmark printer is two years old and seems not fully capable of working in the VISTA environment .
i'll make sure to buy a vista compatible printer - around $ 70 - rather than fussing around with the old one .
i do like the much crisper look of screen displays - both print and pictures .
a/t WINDOWS FOR DUMMIES (
) starting vista on a brand-new computer is a better option than upgrading - should have bought the book before having the upgrade installed .
