The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. If i could find my tinfoil i'd make a hat and suggest that it is intentional.

    Sure you don't want that shiny new copy of Vista mate?
    Oh look, your rig is fooked.
     
  2. didnt even know they had released a sp 3..

    BUT I AM STICKING TO TRUSTY OLD SP 2..

    Tin foil hat firmly on. Sticking with SP2 for now.

    This initial vista is going to be the new ME, one operating system to just give a miss.
     
  4. I've installed SP3, no problems at the moment. Thanks for the info anyway.
     
  5. First attempt to install SP3 failed (no idea why, no error message). Went back to it 24hrs later, went in no probs.

  6. Do I need to worry enough to have the quote translated? AMD, but not HP.
