I know of a few ways to speed up Vista short of buying more stuff to jam in your computer.

1) Download PC Decrapifier. it scans your startup folder for unneeded programs vista loads you with and removes them. http://www.pcdecrapifier.com/download
2) Tweak your power settings. If you are running on a laptop or desktop you can access the power settings in the task bar and there is an option to change the power settings. Change it to "High Performance" Just click the power icon in the task bar and a small window will pop up asking you what to do.
3) Get rid of programs. Uninstall any programs that YOU installed and don't use. ** I would not suggest uninstalling any other programs for risk of messing up your computer.
4) Defragment your hard drive. Go into "My Computer", right-click your "C" drive and click properties. Now go into the tools tab and click the "Defragment" option. Then just run the defragmentor. It will take some time so I would suggest running it overnight.
4) Empty your recycle bin. There should be an icon on the desktop of the recycle bin. Just right click it and click "Empty Recycle Bin."
5) Disable convenience features. Disable things like the sidebar and windows messenger at startup. These are convenient but they take up more memory.

Hope this helps!

Install more RAM. it probably only comes from the factory with 1 gb of installed RAM. if you go to this link http://configurator.pny.com/staples/ you can figure out what kind of RAM you need and how much it costs and how much you can expand it to. If you need help installing it let me know :D

Hi!
if you use Windows XP or earlier, then - right click on your flash drive, goto "properties" -> uncheck "read only" checkbox.

If you use Win 7 or Vista - then use administrator account to run format (shift+right click on program, choose "run as administrator" ). the easiest way in Win7/Vista to format your flash drive is: Start -> all programs -> Accessories -> shift+right click on command prompt -> "run as administrator" -> type fromat driver_letter /q /y and press enter (e.g. if your flash driver has letter z, then you need to type format z /q /y and press enter). This will quickly format your flash drive.

If you use Linux/Unix/MAC OS, then you can use GParted or following command in terminal:

1. su
2. Enter password when asked
3. fdisk /dev/your_flash_drive_name (e.g. dev/sda/)
mkfs -t vfat /dev/your_flash_drive_name

Hope that will help :)

Hy i need the product key of Windows Vista SP2


Your legal copy of Windows Vista came with a key ... where is it?

Has this Operating System worked in the past and you are reloading?

What all of you need to understand is swapping, obtaining or using Product Codes that you didn't purchase is software piracy.

Asking for "cracks" for copyrighted software is *NOT* allowed on FIXYA. Just pay the money, and "get legal" to stop your computer from rebooting Windows 7 Ultimate RC (Release Candidate).
