Is there anyone else here who has MSN VISTA,and
has been FORCED to switch to Windows Live????
I can't make heads or tails of it....
And can't reach MSN by phone (the message just says "please call back" )
Bill Gates should be drawn - quartered - and then hung out to dry!!!

Every time they make an "update" I am left struggling with the stupidities
of a system I neither wanted nor paid for....
How do I get questions answered????
How do I do all the things I'm used to doing????
And still want to do???? there anyone there on Vista who can talk me through this RAGE
I need a support group....HELP....ANYONE....PLEASE....PLEASE
Sorry for the tirade but I've lost my comfort zone
just after having all my teeth out....

Didn't they put out a line of teas and bath products to calm people who have Vista problems. I have Vista I can relate. No more Gold nuggets or Blue diamonds either.

My present computer is custom made by a local shop and when I asked them about Vista he said he did not recommend it so I stayed with XP.

I can't help you, either, but I certainly can feel your pain!

I looked forward to being able to afford a laptop for so long! Finally got one last year, and I pretty much ignore it because I can't make all the interferences of Vista go away. There's no way to turn off everything that is outrageously, maddeningly intrusive. I just hate it. After all that time, after all that's all for nothing. I just get angry and give up. What a waste.

And of course, that has nothing to do with the service you're even talking about. I can't even get far enough into Vista to even know of what you speak.

My ex built this computer 2 years ago - it's amazing. And it runs 98. And I'm totally happy wtih it. Except for the usual Windows problems.

I truly wish that i could be of assistance, but i'm in the same place as you are.
I still Hate VISTA and i've been working with it for about 7 months. I just recently
switched my ISP server and an still trying to muddle through that whole mess.
For 2 weeks i could recieve ,but not send e-mails! I finally got that straightened out!
VISTA certainly isn't the best choice for someone who is so technologically challenged
as i am!

Anyways... just wanted you to know you are not alone with the VISTA frustration
and to wish you good luck .

Okay....I went out and did some shopping therapy and then visited
my Mother in the am in a better mood now....
Thanks to all for your support, understanding and sympathy....

MSN told me....they have no responsibility in the Tech problems.
Their relationship is only with the computer manufacturer....they
only SELL the Software. ALSO....Hotmail is free- so what do I want
for my money????
Think they said GMail is owned by Google ( and maybe Windows
Live too) Suggested I try a site called ""

The only other people a person might call are the Servers ( which in
my case is Rogers Cable )
Can he help me with anything else today???? No????
Then....have a nice day....

Has the whole world gone bananas????

Row - I think we can pretty safely, unequivocally say that yes, the whole world has gone bananas.
