I bought a legal copy of Windows Vista. I installed Windows Vista properly with the correct Product-Key. Now – WOW – a Windows Vista Update is out so I went and installed that. But: After the Update, Windows Vista wants me to enter my product key again. I do that. But then it tells me my product key has already been registered and is being used and that I should buy a new product key! WTF? What the F*ck??? This is total Bullshit. I spend several 100 Dollars for my Windows Vista Ultimate and then THIS happens! WTF?
What are they thinking at Microsoft? Deactivating MY copy of Windows Vista Ultimate after every Update? I am not surprised that Windows Vista loses so much business to Windows XP.
Lest just get one thing straight. So far Windows Vista to me is the ULTIMATE Crap! Do not buy Windows Vista! Just don’t touch it.
Use Linux or buy a Mac.
Update: After dropping out of the Helpline several times and going half crazy and spending lots of time on the internet not being able to work with my latest Vista-Update, I finally was able to reactivate my updated Windows Vista after I reactivated it _BY_PHONE_. Man! We live in the internet age! Why the heck do I have to update the latest Version of Vista by phone? I mean if this would be Windows 95 – ok – I would understand. But not Windows Vista, the latest, newest and supposedly best product so far of Microsoft. Gimme a break please.

Hey! I share your pain, actually, lol I don’t but I’ve heard so many problems with Vista, that I just kept my Handy Windows XP Media Center, upgraded from Windows XP Pro 😀 and whats more, I didn’t get nagged about the Key when I installed it!
Honestly you wasted your money, and your completely right, Windows Vista IS the Ultimate Crap!! I mean, its been rated the worst Operating System in the History of Microsoft, even they, of course, try to ignore it..
I’d say you can leave Vista behind, since when I went to my local Best Buy… and checked out a Sony Vaio with Vista Ultimate on it, FROZE as the guy was showing me around… LOL
I felt bad for the guy, seeing he was embarrassed and was thinking he lost my vote to buy something from the store, so I decided to buy Windows XP Media Center.. 😛 and a few upgrades.
Dude, if you need XP Pro Or Media Center, I’d be glad to help you out, just e-mail me, in the mean time, let hope Microsoft decides to bring out a second Edition of Vista 😛 (llike windows 98!!! 😛 )
Take care, and Happy Holidays!
I bought an Acer with Windows Vista installed fro my stepson.
It fell over 5 times in the first 4 weeks and went into repair mode.
I took it back to the shop thinking that there was a fault on the machine.
The replacement machine is even worse. It is now falling over about half the time on boot up and goes into repair mode.
Don’t make Bill Gates even richer by buying this crap!
Windows Vista is a TOTAL CRAP. It wastes all my time trying to access my own files. Hey Bill If you ever read this, you’re an asshole!
