I understand completely. Eventually everyone will be running Vista, so support will increase with time when more people move to it. I can navigate through XP easier, but I'm sure an Experienced Vista user can do the same. Good luck on which ever you decide!

Normally windows vista no problem to communicate with any anti-virus software unless the software is damaged or not supported by windows vista so do not let it work. (If it really can work on vista, most likely operating system you use there is a problem)But do not worry, you still have many choices, for example try to use anti-virus or improve the problem in your operating system.
Hopefully this can help, thank you

Remove vista and install XP on HCL laptop


Your laptop probably has SATA hard disk installed in it. You will need to install from an XP SP2 or later CD for native SATA support. Otherwise you will need to get the SATA drivers for the chipset being used on the laptop and slipstream them onto a new bootable CD or go through the process of adding the drivers manually during the initial phase of the installation.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You can access Vista disk management (right click on computer from the Start Menu > Manage > Storage > Disk Management) and shrink your current partition and create a new one. Then install XP on that new partition. This is if you want a dual boot of both XP and Vista.

If the laptop was bought as new, the message can be a bogus , coming from some kind of virus. It is rare that a seller distibute a laptop with non genuine software.

To know if you own a windows valid licence check if there is Windows licence sticker on the bottom side of the laptop.
If you have no sticker with Vista serial, like this one (they are for XP yours must be for Vista):

Then installed Windows is probably a pirate copy.



The fact that the problem has gone undetected for some times may be normal, as Microsoft controls genuinity only when you do certain updates.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
