    Can anyone tell me if there are any new tools in vista to fix problems or commands like msconfig that are also new to the OS?

    I guess you would need to be more specific. The boot manager(bcedit) is new. There is some free software out there that builds on top of that with a GUI. Can't remember there names off hand. You can also install the Power Shell.

    Thanks, pehbond, for your thread. I wondered about sfc /scannow.

    I ran sfc /scannow, as an administrator. After sfc /scannow ran, I viewed the log. It noted repair of Windows Installer files.

    I was able to install java 5.10.

    Sincerely,
    RF123
