The HUGE BIG-BIG Windows Vista Thread

Recommended Posts

I probably should have asked "Does anyone's Media Center work properly" :D

 

Mine seems to work just fine. I can play DVDs, MP3s, and the built in MS Games. What can't yours do?

Please excuse my lack of a Sig (I know it's in the rulez and I'll have one soon). I'm using Vista64 RC1 and would like to know what security software (anti-virus/spam/etc software you are using?).

 

(-: FireFox :-)

As with all my pc's, I do not use any. I'm behind a router that's setup properly and I don't go to dodgy sites or download random files (though it could be said I'm a heavy torrent user) and have never had an issue.

Even on XP I run an old version of SP2 which hasn't been updated in over a yr, turn off security center and firewall services, and I haven't had any spyware/virus on my pc's in the yrs I've had them.

My parents on the other hand seem to get a virus every couple of months..

From what is being said as long as the hard drive isn't changed no reactivation is required.

If the hard drive or motherboard is changed you will have to reactivate.

 

" Should you change the hard drive and another piece of hardware - for example for a major upgrade such as a motherboard change that requires a re-installation - Microsoft will allow you to re-activate up to 10 times. You will not, however, be able to have more than one machine activated concurrently. "
