If you were to state what your problem and programs are we may be of help to you. Most issues with Vista are the programs and/or hardware are to old.

Have you READ the FIRST few threads at the top of the list here in the Vista threads?

Well the one major problem you are going to run into while trying to downgrade to XP is driver availability. Check the manufacturers site to make sure they have XP drivers for all your devices (video, network, sound, etc.) Also, some attached devices that were designed for Vista (i.e. Bluetooth) will no longer work with XP installed.

But before you go through all that, DaveA is correct. Some information about the actual programs would be helpful. Also, have you checked those programs for updates? Most programs these days have built in update features in them.

Thanx for that dude, but.. how do i check that the drivers can run windows xp...

And i alredy tryed to install it, the install worked great but the xp seemd totally messed up!
The scrollbars didnt work, the graphic was alot worse, internet didnt work, and so on...

Did i burn the CD wrong or anything like that or did my computer just not handle it? ;)

P.S i downloaded a activated windows xp from xxxxxxxxx.........



Thanx for the info u gave me, and YES i did read the top threads about vista...
