I agree with the suggestion given befroe but If you still encounter the same issues I think that your will need to reformat the drives and reinstall your vista. If you are not using the original software then it is likely to get the files delected if the default settings are active on your intital setttings. In such a case open the internet explorer, tools,internet options select blank.
Also before you are doing the formatting and reinstalling you can also try to defraagment and clean up your temporary files and cookies. If you have a good antivirus installed, use it for searching for virus.Also use an advanced system care free sofware to clear any malwares. Hope this helps . Good day

I am looking to set up an old computer with new memory and hard drive. I have windows vista from my laptop computer can I install this into my newly updated computer and how.


Generally, the licensed software for your laptop is tied to that machine/brand. If you bought a copy of vista and installed it on the laptop, you may be able to install vista on three machines if that is the version you bought.
Most Microsoft programs are locked to one machine and won't activate on another system.
Now, if this is an old, slow (less than 1 Ghz) with less than 2 gigs, it probably will run Vista very slowly if you get it installed. I'd use the OS that was on the old machine instead of trying to install Vista.

I have windows mail and would like outlook express. Is there somewhere I can download it for free or do I have to buy a program?


If you have Windows Mail, you no doubt are running Windows Vista. Sorry, but Outlook Express is not supported in Vista. You are stuck with Windows Mail or a third-party mail client. FYI, I use Thunderbird and am quite satisfied. It works with Windows XP through Windows 7

I need to reset my my computer t180 aspire please help


Hi,

If you are looking to install or up-grade the your computer to Windows Vista then the first thing you need to look at is the Hardware compatibility, I understand that you are using Acer Aspire T180 computer which must have had very high configuration, however I recommend you to please check if the system is 100% compatible with the Windows Vista software as there is no harm in just making sure of what it is rather than running into issues later so with the help of the link below you can download and run the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor to know the system compatibility.

Then once you know that the system is compatible with the Vista, you can now start the installation wizard. However do not worry, about the installation wizard asking you where to get installed as it is quite normal, you will have to provide the system with the hard-drive information, for it to get installed. The best way is to go with the default option that you see on your screen. Here are few links below through which you can download the guide for how to Up-grade to windows vista as well as for How to install Vista step-by-step. Download the guides and use them for you assistance.
