This can be fixed by stopping the automatic update.when your update is On, this will make your Vista program to start Update but they stop update when your vista program is having an error.

Trying to load American Greetings CreataCard Platinum 7 on my computer with Vista windows and when it gets to true type fonts it stops and won't load. Can you tell me what is happening?


This software will need to be ran in compatibility mode as it was designed for Windows XP and will not work properly on Vista without running it in compatibility mode. Follow Microsoft's instructions here:

Windows Vista just stopped working oneday and said my trial version had expired and I needed to enter a new product key. I can not afford to buy a new windows program but I need my computer to finish...


Backup all your data files.
Re-install Windows Vista.
This will "reset" the trial-software back to "day one".

Or, see: http://www.TheUltimateSteal.ca
and then switch from CANADA to your country.
Post-secondary students can "rent" the software,
or buy it at a VERY attractive price.

Job Status Window Interface has stopped working.


The issue usually occurs if you are using windows xp drivers on a vista machine. It's strange that the error does not come up when printing from internet explorer 7.0.

There is a file on support.dell.com that you can run to remove any xp drivers and then run the vista installation file. that should take care of these error messages from the operating system.

you can copy and paste the following links to download and run the files :

Patch file to remove xp drivers:

Printer issues


Have you installed any update recently? Sometimes the updates meant to fix problems create others
But the most common problem is a faulty USB cable. Try another one and see if it works.

PC game Jericho wont run


YES Vista is the problem. It won't run many older programs for Windows 95, 98, 2000, NT and so on. If you want something that does go to www.mindblowingidea.com/Ultumix and install that instead.
