Ok. I am really pissed off at Vista now. I download WLM(windows live messenger) and every time i open it or try to sign in it FRICKIN CRASHES! I tried microsofts work around and went from 8.0 to 8.1 and then to 8.5 and still, it crashes.

Help!!!!!! I have to maintain a social life!

Vista does suck pretty badly. I think your best and least problematic option is to use System Restore to set your computer back to BEFORE you installed the first copy of WLM. Download a new copy, make sure no other programs are running (especially WLM) and try reinstalling.

Shortest point between problems and solutions are often skipped...don't get stuck in a troubleshooting frenzy that lasts days and days.

Good luck.

Vista has been working pretty well since June 2007 for me.

On the other hand, Windows Live Messenger is a pretty pathetic substitute for a social life!

I have had Vista since February as well...an although it works "pretty well", if I didn't have to learn and support the POS, I would gladly stay with XP. On the plus side, Vista pushed me into learning a lot more about Linux, and I see a lot of advantages of a Linux box over Vista and even XP.

Good luck.

I would suggest a moderator cuts this thread immediately. There are so many similar threads now, comparing the merits and dissatisfaction with Vista, it no longer makes interesting reading, and has no useful input.

I suggest we cut hoolighan immediately, and allow the OP the opportunity to get the problem solved.

OK So lets see some help!
I was trying to make a sensible suggestion but it was trsashed.
The last thread like this started with a request for help, and after 23 postings, only one, unsúccessful, offer of help was made. The remaining postings were merely opinions on Vista, half of which led into quite sensitive written arguments.
Hi Spartan. Try updating your Flash Player with the latest release, if you havn't already done so. Its here:

Maybe this will lighten the mood:

ww2spartan, I also suggest a visit to the TSG Rules. I edited the profanity out of your subject, please try to control yourself. There is no need for profanity, the English language is rich enough to express technical issues without it.

So you want to do system restore right? Go to Start Menu, Accessories, go to System Tools, System Restore.

Recapping my first post (#2 above):
I think your best and least problematic option is to

1) use System Restore (Start --> All Programs --> System Tools --> System Restore) to set your computer back to BEFORE you installed the first copy of WLM.
2) Download a new copy (of WLM),
3) Make sure no other programs are running (especially WLM) and try reinstalling.

Good luck...

On my HP Vista PC

It's left click on ...
Start > All Programs > Accesories > System Tools > System Restore

LOL. Been looking for a "short cut" to it. Normally, I go into HP's Help & Support screen and 10 or 20 key clicks later, I find system restore.
