I have noticed your Issue #1, though only with certain types of files
(.cab files in particular). I don't know if this problem existed before
5728 - that is when I first noticed it. Although Explorer freezes, the
Copy is in fact successful.
In my case I was not even able to cancel or shut down the computer -- I
had to power it off. I do not see any difference if the original file is
on the Vista desktop.
I have to say I agree with you - Vista is not ready. Everywhere I look
there are things like this. It may be quicker than beta 2, it may have
, some bugs may have been fixed, but it is not, IMHO, ready.
