I don't believe system.ini and win.ini are really used in Vista. What you are seeing is probably legacy support of some kind.

Why are you trying to edit it any way?

Can you right click on one of these files and check the properties? When was it created or modified?

Is there a a Security tab on the properties page? If you can open that you can add your User Name for what it's worth.

PageBuffers=32
MinTimeSlice=40
MaxBPs=65530
DMABufferSize=64
ConservativeSwapFileUsage=1

[vache]
MinFileCache=0
MaxFileCache=131072

I'm putting those in place, but they won't let me overwrite system.ini file for some reason...

None of that would have any effect with Vista, don't waste your time.

Wow, Vista is incredibly gay, is there any way to completely delete Vista off of a computer and basically turn it into an XP machine?

Those settings would have absolutely no effect in XP either, so what exactly is your issue? Why are you fooling around with a file left over from Windows 3.1?
