You didn't just upgrade from OE6 to Windows Mail, you upgraded from XP
to Vista. After the upgrade, did you install Vista drivers for your
hardware? If you didn't, then that's your next step because it sounds
like your touchpad or keyboard drivers are incorrect.
Since you didn't tell us anything about your computer, that's as
specific as I can get. Here is general information about drivers:
Get drivers from:
1. The device mftr.'s website; OR
2. The motherboard mftr.'s website if hardware is onboard; OR
3. The OEM's website for your specific machine if you have an OEM
computer (HP, Dell, Sony, etc.).
Read the installation instructions on the website where you get the drivers.
To find out what hardware is in your computer:
1. Read any documentation you got when you bought the computer.
2. If the computer is OEM, go to the OEM's website for your specific
model machine and look at the specs (you'll be there to get the drivers
3. Download, install and run a free system inventory program like Belarc
Advisor. The older Aida32 is good for this, too. http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html
