I currently own WinXP pro 64bit and when I saw all the commercials on the
Windows site, I was persuaded that it was an upgrade to make, an improvement.
When I installed winVista 64bit I was excited since everything looked
nicer.. "BUT" here's the catch of my problems... I installed my ATI 64bit
compatible Vista drivers
and Creative soundcard and rebooted, then I
installed SuperAntispyware (wich I usualy have) and rebooted again.. I
noticed that my pc did not boot faster as claimed, but a tad slower.. I ran
my games and most of them ran sluggish, showing glitches all over my screen
(dots like what you see when looking at a very old damaged movie). My PC
seemed to be slower overall and when I ran my spyware program, it seemed
windows has infinite spyware, like a virus that reinstalls itself when
removed. I had my spyware scanner attempt to remove the spyware over the
night but when I looked at my pc, it was totally ruined.. It was even more
slower and all the special effects had gone so I was forced to reinstall
WinXP. I have a friend with exactly the same problem and both of us own an
original copy of WinVista.
Can someone help me with WHY WindowsVista might work awfully crappy on my
system compared to WindowsXPpro?
Perhaps Vista requires specific hardware to NOT be slower?
