    I'm trying to install an audio driver, and vista keeps giving me an alert saying its not from a verified publisher or something. I click install anyway and the box keeps coming up. I cross off the box ~ the install stops. How do i turn this sh*t off?

    1. In the start menu type "gpedit.msc" and press enter
    2. From the menu on the left go into User Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/Driver Installation
    3. Double click on "Code signing for device drivers"
    4. Select "Disabled", then "Apply"

    i have used vista on other computers, and its slow. but on my main desktop, i kept windows XP. I was pressured into installing 7, and even on my computer that ran XP, 7 is FAST! Best OS (on PC) evar.

    Turn off UAC, but i dont think the unsigned drivers are uac. but UAC is ever so annoying.

    1) Install 7
    2) Never talk about Vista ever again

    1) Get Linux.
    2) Dualboot it with some crappy Windows installation.
    3) Almost never talk about Windows again.

    You need to update mate as soon as possible. Vista is a terrible operating system

    Might as well throw 7 to the garbage. I've never had problems with Vista or XP, 7 is probably the worst of them all. 7 is just as bad as you think Vista is.
