still trying to upgrade to vista premium - in the computer shop .
i'm no longer able to use "message body" instructions or "font colour - font size" , emoticons won't pop up either ???

computer is 18 months old - 1 GB - 250 harddrive , upgraded video card ... ... and was working fine under windows XP .
the test done in the shop - a very reputable one where i bought the computer - showed that there should be NO upgrade problems .

also can no longer access GOOGLE IMAGES - though IMAGES in google text appear and can also be transferred .

a lot of headscratching going on in the shop here !

anyone have problems with getting VISTA to do its tricks ?

thanks !

I did it at home. Tomy own big surprise, I got no difficulties at all.
(I waited until the last driver for my sanner was out two months ago.)

But I'm happy for you, Hbg.

brought the computer home from the shop yesterday .
apparently the two year old lexmark printer might not be compatibible with VISTA !?
so i uninstalled the printer and it worked fine in the shop ... re-connected at home (to a different internet provider - my old one) and could not connect to outlook express .
so i also uninstalled MCAFEE ( Shocked ) and it's working fine now !
bought VISTA FOR DUMMIES after the update had been done . woody leonhard - the writer/expert - suggests it's best to have a NEW computer when going to VISTA , another Shocked .
i'll try to re-install MCAFEE and see what happens !
wish me luck !

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 ( Shocked Laughing ) starting vista on a brand-new computer is a better option than upgrading - should have bought the book before having the upgrade installed .

I had had a similar problem with my scanner - but since it works with the VISTA driver no real problem.

things are working well now , but i've left the printer on the floor for now .
the lexmark printer is a rather large one and there are no off-brand cartridges available here - a set is $70 Shocked
i think i'll look for a small , simple printer that will accept STAPLES brand cartridges - even though a warning comes up when they are being installed .
