don't install it.

I just got my upgrade copy yesterday, and I installed it and now my PC is basically shit. It runs slower than a turtle in molasses.

This from the powertogether thing?

I have that and office, and I haven't broken the seal on either yet. I'ma too scared. I even got an upgrade disc for my laptop in the mail last week. I just like to look at it. )

when i upgraded to Vista it was a pain in the ass...the upgrade doesn't transfer shit from your old computer the way it should. They claim they have a easy transfer program well it works like crap. I finally did get everything straightened out but it was a huge pain in the ass.

Just dual boot. taht way you can have the best of both worlds...thats what i do. i spend most my gaming time in XP, but if i am just browsing the net or somehting, why not mess with vista. its pretty and fun for browsing and what not, but gaming i would still go with XP until you have vista exclusive and or dx10 games.

alright, sounds like im not going to install it i jsut dont see the positive things its going to accomplish. i will deal with it later on when the service packs come out and the initial issues are worked out.

was from the powertogether promotion, i dont do much gaming so XP works fine for me as of now mainly use computer as a media center.
