I have a Toshiba Satellite running Vista and am having all kinds of trouble lately. I'm getting blue screens, trouble shutting down, 'Not Responding', etc errors. I use this laptop for both personal and...

as long as you are not having a hardware issue, windows 7 fixes alot of vistanogo's problems. i would recommend windows 7 professional for mixed home office use and 64 bit. if you are having alot of blue screens, i recommend trying to reload windows to factory settings. the 0(zero) key is the one you press and hold with eht battery out and connected to dc power to get to the restore partition. follow the prompts and reinstall. if this works reinstall all the updates for vista up to and to include service pack 2. then purchase windows 7(do not recommend pirated software because of the risk of viruses and errors). install the update to windows 7 option and repost on your findings.

Have a new Windows 7. Adobe keeps asking to

I would recommend uninstalling the version of Adobe Reader you have installed through the Control Panel>Programs and Features.

Then download and install the latest version directly from Adobe's site.
