Exclamation New PC up and runnin......but......

Hey all. I got my new all up'n runnin. It's pretty nice and the graphics on the monitor are insane though you'd never be able to tell from these lame pics.....:






I like it a lot and it's MUCH quicker than my old PC...but........I'm not so sure I'm diggin this new Vista It's not user friendly for total computer (know nothings) such as myself. Some of the features are really cool, but I'm having a hard time with the whole picture thing. What the heck is this "Snapfire" stuff? It won't let me download pics from the internet to my PC without purchasing it. Can I just remove the program, or is that program required for Vista??? Told ya I was very dumb;-) Also, when downloading pix from my camera, I can seem to choose the folder that they will download into. It doesn't give me an option and I have to group them in a new folder each time with a tag I don't want 50 zillion folders and I'll never be able to find the pics I'm looking for. With XP and Millenium, I could just download the pics directly into my documents and I can't seem to be able to do that with this Vista It's the same camera software, but everything is totally different
now!!

WTF??? Xp was just fine. Why the hell did they have to go and make everythng so difficult!!! ;-(

Anyways.....if any of you guys know anything about "Vista" assitance would be much appreciated!

thanks!

Love the PC, not loving the Vista

Jim, just go search for Vista tweak guide or something, I'm sure you can make that thing run much sweeter. All MS operating systems run like treacle on a cold day before tweaks, and there are lots of guides around. Look for a Vista services tweak guide too.

+1

Go to the Anandtech Forums. Lots of knowledgeable people over there to help you out with anything computer related. That's where I gained all of my computer knowledge, but seeing that I have never dealt with Vista, I can be of no assistance to you.

Re: New PC up and runnin......but......

Well....I'm starting to get down some of it (I think)

What a PIA! If MS was trying to make things easier, they certainly acheived this opposite in this case

I miss the ease of XP


I think the Vista will work out okay.....it just functions A LOT different and will take some getting used to (especially for a computer dumb-arse like myself )

this new PC is uber FAST so now I can beat you guys to your replies

Replace Vista with XP?

I updated to Internet Explorer 7 today and I was so pissed off with it I thought "the old one was just fine"..so I uninstalled it. I know how you feel...if it ain't broke don't fix it

Re: New PC up and runnin......but......

Just wait till you open the new MS Office 2007 , all Pics uptop, just loost at what your looking for, until you understand the theme...

Snapfire I think is a Corel Picture software. " Snapfire : Easy-to-use app handles image editing, management, and sharing. " , which may be part of a Dell Bundle. I guess if they want you to buy it, I would uninstall it... there is porbally a lot of this shareware on the new PC, which I hate.


Yea IE7 takes some getting use to, the new button placement is hard to get use to... I think FireFox 2.0+ is did the right thing and MS should change the layout back to what they had or allow you to modify the tools and locations.

Yeah....I already did install it. It's pretty cool actually with a lot of options, but I canl;t seem to download pics off off the net

Grrrrrrr!! So much for guitar collecting and porn
