What I hate about Windows Vista

My friend got himself a blue Vaio. He cussed me. He gave back the Vaio. And exchanged it for an Acer. I laughed. He wanted an IBM and I told him that is a grandpapa’s laptop. My infectious sales lingoes conned him into it. But he got terribly annoyed with both Vaio and Vista because the system crashed three times. Mine too. But I learn to live with it because I cannot afford to exchange and I love the pink Vaio. Moreover, I do not use as many applications as him as he used it for his work. Whereas, I only use my laptop for surfing, some Excel, some Word, Dreamweaver and that’s about it. I do not even have any photo editing softwares like Photoshop or any video converter on it yet.

Now, what I hate about Windows Vista is how annoying this nagging old grandma is. It has to ask you EVERY SINGLE time you want to add something, install new softwares, change some settings and just about every blardy thing. Not just major stuffs but small, easy tasks. It is so duh, ok?

“Are you sure you want to proceed?”

“This program is trying to……Do you know if it is from some trusted source?”

“Does this program has your permission to….”

Argggh…it is insecure like an insecured woman inside my laptop asking me every blardy thing I want to embark on. I hate it! But now, I have to live with it. I like my pink Vaio. Nothing is going to pry me from it.

I hope my ex-blue Vaio owner friend did not read this or else he is going to pour black paint on my pink Vaio.

My last advice – Don’t get a laptop because the colour is nice. Unless you are frivolous like me. :P I earned the Vaio from writing paid posts so I can afford to make mistakes, and live with it.

    You can turn that option off.

    Control panel -> User account -> Turn user account on or off -> Untick Use UAC to protect your computer.

    You can turn that security feature off, try to search around how to turn it off. I prefer Vista ask me everything before I proceed…. if my lousy computer won’t lag everytime it ask me….

    For IBM, that’s my ideal PC, cause can treat it harshly, while VAIO is the best show off laptop in the world, because it has the lower spec with the highest price, like PRADA hand back that cant put in a bottle of water… rubbish. But I like it.

    Control Panel -> Users Accounts -> Turn User Account Control on or off, uncheck the UAC.

    RB – Yay, got it. You know hor, this CCB Vaio doesn’t come with a printed manual, only some CD and I was too lazy to explore.

    vhanded – Mine lag too, freeze everything until I say YES LAH! then baru it proceeds. Hahaha.

    Jason – Thanks a lot. I will holler if it annoys me again.

    Haha, why Windows Vista is bad for me is its compatibility with software and hardware, I am still considering whether I should change to it

    just change back to XP. in fact, if you ordered a Dell now, you can just ask the salesperson to get XP installed rather than Vista. until everybody starts using Vista, i guessed it’s still save to stick to XP :) purely my personal view only…
