    Don't do it.

    I got in a right mess and had to clean install Vista.
    Actually that was a blessing in disguise since
    it got shot of all the Dell loaded crapware
    but it was a right pain at the time.

    Just plug the rat in and it'll work OK.

    Imagine installing a Microsoft app that screws up ones system so badly that
    a clean install is required! Yep, that's just the way things work in the
    Microsoft world. Can you see a new Vista user, say your grannie, do a clean
    install of Vista because Intellipoint trashed her system? Isn't Vista fun!
    Of course, it couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Especially a guy who spends
    all his time being a Vista Fan Boy. Now, this is something that I must save
    and refer people to in the future when Julian starts jumping up and down
    defending Vista and waving his Microsoft flag. :-)

    Love and Kisses,
    Doris

    PS. Slowly but surely, the truth about the abomination called Vista gets
    out, even if unintentionally. Thanks Julian. Now you can tell us why you
    run your blog on Linux.

    Intellipoint 5.2 and Vista. Another newbie question

    I have Intellipoint 5.2 which I have been using on my XP machine with a MS
    optical USB mouse (2 buttons and wheel). I wanted advice and opinions
    before installing it on my new Vista machine because somewhere I read that
    it does not work. Thanks in advance for all advice.
