    is there a FAQ somewhere I could consult that tells how to fine-tune and perhaps stabilize/harden Vista Home Basic so its not such a turkey? I have media on the way from HP and need to configure this system cleanly before putting it to work.
    XP's I know, Win7 I know, but Vista is something I have avoided for the most part ...

    appreciate the advice! thx

    Win 7 has Vista's kernel, so it's hard to know 7 and not know Vista. They are very similar under the hood. I've found very few differences overall.

    super. thank you all. while I'm waiting on my discs from HP I'm installing Windows 8 on virtualbox... we'll see how that goes.
    fodder for another post, but on my win 7 lab mule I don't think i've EVER had a hash compare come out clean, yet I burn discs and everything goes swell. what is the deal.... the utility? the system? the browser? sunspots? ufo's?
