Bought a new laptop the other day with MS Vista. When I hit the (X) to close out an IE window it wants to restart the window and bring up my home page. I have heard that Vista does some strange things but I didn't have much of a choice if I wanted a new machine. Any ideas?
Fixed it! Read a MS Forum where this is happening alot and sometimes it can be cleared by deleting certain IE add-ons. I just went to Advanced Settings and reset/deleted everything. From what I have read MS has not addressed the issue yet.
I think I'm the only person that actually likes Vista
I like it. It runs pretty good, but I agree for the common user it is a bit of overkill, and definately requires a powerful machine. But if you are buying a new machine, they've got ya covered on that part.
You're only as strong as you allow yourself to be...
vista works fine for me. it used to have some issues right when it first came out. i remember having a hard time finding drivers for some stuff when i first installed it. if you are buying an off the shelf pc with vista you won't have any problems.
i always turn off all the extra fancy UI crap and make it look like windows 2000/NT, which i did with xp also.
