Default Re: Some games not working at all

every game ive ever tried to play on vista has worked fine for me. Never had to try any compatibility issues or anything of that nature. I actually had more problems with xp.

but i had also mine...at first some of my program didn't recognize of vista...
I think that's the one you're saying... but also my uncle also has a vista and he said that he download some program that also needed in installation of vista..

but it also gets really annoying as the process is stuck there and there is no way to kill the process even at task manager or taskkill in command prompt even using /f option. This takes ages to log off/shut down so i have to press down the power button or push the restart button which is really annoying.

I would say that your install is bunk. Cause you are running a Dual Core and i have absolutely no issues like this at all. I only have a P4 3.4GHz and my system runs smoother than yours.
