    I mean...there's nothing happening, i am not downloading anything and no program is running that uses the internet connection , and the internet icon in the taskbar keeps blinking, which slows down the internet connection because vista is using 50% of the internet connection , on xp this doesn't happen

    you sure it is IE not Explorer?

    check for virus, there is no reason for IE to run w/o enabling it.

The IE will be runing on Vista if you have side bar enable, or any program that require continue update from Internet. This is something new from Microsoft as user friendly interface.
Right click on the status bar (blue bar at the buttom of the screen). select task manager, select detail. you should be able to see what is runing, stop any or all programs reqire Internet. restart IE.

The greedy folks at Microsoft use their WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) to monitor your microsoft products, cant be helped, they claim to only check microsoft products though this should only take a second or two for verification. Check your firewall settings and if neccessary use multiple firewalls to stop the intrusions.

Windows Vista updates are distributed in service packs. Service packs
help keep Windows Vista current, and they can extend and update the
functionality of your computer. This article describes three

pack for Windows Vista. However, before you select the method that you
want to use, please make sure that the following conditions are true:
The service pack is not already installed on your computer.
You are logged on to your computer by using a user account that is a
computer administrator.
The computer on which you want to install the service pack is
connected to the Internet.
If you are not sure that all these conditions are true, please see the
"Before you try to download the latest Windows Vista service pack"
section. Otherwise, select the method that you want to use to download
and install the service pack.
Methods to download the latest service pack
Method 1: Turn on Automatic Updates (Recommended for most users)
Method 2: Check for updates on Windows Update (Same as Method 1 but
not automatic)
Method 3: Obtain the latest Windows Vista service pack from the
Microsoft Download Center (Good to use if the computer on which you
want to install the service pack is not connected to the Internet)
Important: Windows Update may not offer the latest Windows Vista
service pack to some users. This issue can occur for several reasons.

Partical incompatability-messed up whole computer-freezes,internet messed up-wont let me delete program out-message keeps appearing!!!


I, myself have had nothing but problems when I downloaded Internet Explorer 9! I got rid of it. The best way to get rid of IE 9 once you have downloaded it is to go to Windows Update, click " view update history", click "Installed Updates" and once they all appear, find Windows Internet Explorer 9 ( Under Microsoft Windows, which is below Microsoft Visual C & Microsoft Silver-light 1, among others ) and uninstall it! It is quite very simple and IS the only way to get back to IE 8 ( If that is what you had previously, otherwise it will default to IE 7. BTW, very easy to re-install IE 8! ). For some reason, once you start using Google Chrome browser, it is best to simply avoid Internet Explorer! I use Google Chrome & love it! I also use Mozilla Firefox! Sometimes we must use Windows IE since it is the browser which came with the computer. But I would avoid IE 9 and just not download it again once you are rid of it! No matter how much Windows/Microsoft tells you that you need to download it! Hope you have your computer running efficiently again! arjay8tch (Richard Holt)

My computer is running too slow.


The best way to speed up a slow running computer is to clean it for viruses. Also optimize your system, browser and registry using some reliable cleaner such as Reginout Cleaner.

> Keep your device drivers updates.

Youtube keeps stalling, plays for 20secs then just stops?


YouTube freeze can happen due to many reasons. Major reasons are overload on website, simultaneous running of many programs on your computer, Low RAM, Slow internet connection or corrupt windows registry.

For smooth watching of YouTube Videos take following actions:
1. Watch videos at off peak times, if possible

2. Do not run other programs while watching videos. They slow down computer in general by making use of memory.

3. Add RAM on your computer. More RAM will make easy execution of heavy programs on your system.

4. Get better and speedy internet connection. Talk to your ISP in this regard.

5. Regularly clean windows registry. Windows registry is vital place that stores information for important computing functions. A congested or corrupted windows registry makes computer slow that causes YouTube like freezes. For this, get the best registry cleaner reginout cleaner and optimizer. Use it once in a fortnight for fast computing to avoid YouTube freezes and system slow down.

Wireless Connection Is REALLY slow


* 802.11n is a recent amendment which provides more speed So nothing to do with that

* Now with vista increase speed by
reality Vista has already taken 20% of your bandwidth to reserve for updates and all
For to disable it do following steps

1. type gpedit.msc in search box
then a Group Policy Object Editor will popup.
Under Local Computer Policy
click or expand Adminstrative Templates
next click or expand Network
then click on Qos Packet Scheduler (remember dont click on the expander here just click on Qos Packer Scheduler)
Now double click Limit reservable bandwidth

(You will see Not configured which is the default settings but in reality Vista has already taken 20% of your bandwidth to reserve for updates and stuff like that.)

Now click on Enabled then in the Bandwidth Limit (%) set it to 0 then click apply then reboot.
tried it and it does work



*********
For downloadin and all use IDM(internet Download Manager) Has Great features has a good accelerator too

or


* Use Softwares Like SpeedConnect Internet Accelerator

SpeedConnect prevents fragmentation in data transfer using the TCP/IP protocols used on the Internet, greatly increasing the connection throughput and the download/upload speeds (Kbps).
