Default vista

guys i have downloaded and installed windows vista cr1 ...
its a cool , very colourfull , more featuers and very complicated ...
it asks for permition in every **** thing it does ..
and remmber how it was when we upgraded from windows 98 to win xp ( all the drivers must be updated "hardware") it the same .. i have to change most of my hardware to meet with vista's needs ..
to me ... i think that i will install it after 6 month at least ..
am not willing to change anything now .. think about it !

The permissions thing you talk about is the new UAP. (User Account Protection) It is geared toward helping users in stopping fly by installs of viruses, malware and spyware. As i know the purpose of this feature and think that it can be a great thing. I also know how annoying it can be since i have used Vista since it was still Longhorn.

Best advice i can give in this situation is if you can live with it do so. It will only offer valuable security. If it becomes to much of a annoyance you can turn it off in the Control Panel. Under User Accounts. You will have to restart the machine in order for it to take effect.

With having it off you will be able to operate as you do on XP but be warned with Anti-Virus apps hard to find that work on Vista if you visit some shady sites or download some less than perfect files you can be affected.

np. you need to mount your real CD rom to vmware pc. if you load a install cd in there you can install windows in the vmwware pc.
