What I have found is the issue with Vista is how it controls any software installed in the Program Files folder on the windows drive. For some reason it believes you shouldn't be in complete charge of what is in there, which irritates me to no end.

What I have done is change all my installed software like the following example. If 101 was installed to:

C:\Program Files\101 The Airborne Invasion of Normandy\101

I change it to:

C:\101 The Airborne Invasion of Normandy\101

I've run it on Vista now for 4 months with zero issues, and find it seems to be slightly smoother than when I ran it on XP or even 98SE.

I'm still not a fan of Vista...8)

Hope that helps,

To keep it tidier create a couple of folders & instal things in there, never use program files as it shifts stuff but a few called say
Programs
Games
Demos
etc.
Makes it easy to find them for patching checking uninstall got everything etc.
