Windows Vista is useless.
« on: October 22, 2009, 01:24:07 pm »
Lately I've been having problems, with Windows Updates. I've had four and four have "failed", where an Update for Windows Defender was sucessful, yet these four won't installed. I don't know what to do.

What would happen if one were to open it with another web browser, or when they don't need any updates?

It wouldn't work.

It just wouldn't update.

Yeah, those would all be fixed if you installed them on IE7/8 with that site I gave you.

I fucking hate Vista so much, but Mac PCs, and Lunix PCs cost so much here in England, where they're cheaper out there in America, as the prices are different, and England is terrible.

Edit: They still fail. I think it's the updates, as my PC has been getting the same three updates my laptop is getting and they fail as well. It's the updates,

I still don't understand what you mean about it costing more.  Money-wise, it's cheaper.  It most likely takes more time and energy, so if that's the case, I understand completely (however, I would still like for you to clarify).

Windows 7 seems a lot like Vista to me. But I've only had it a few hours.

Still I had problems like that on my old laptop.

Vista sucks, Windows sucks. I managed to get it to finally upgrade to Service Pack 2, but the stupid three useless updates for Microsoft Office (never use it and my PC had lost that 6 years ago when it was first wiped), they can't be that important if they fail. What I was trying to say, that trying to find a Lunix/Mac built PC/laptop in the UK, that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, would be like trying to find a needle in a haystack. We have Windows Vista over here in the UK and it's useless! Windows 7 is going to be a failure like Vista, because Microsoft has too many holes, and this is why we have too many viruses, where Lunix and the Macs got 0.

IMO, the only reason Microsoft gets attacked by so many viruses is because most people know that Windows is the #1 OS in terms of quantity: more people use Windows than any other OS.

To be honest, I wouldn't call it #1 if it keeps having these pointless updates that "fail" where everytime they encounter an unknown error everytime.

Windows 7 is now out, you could either buy that, or revert to XP.

I already told you I can't without a XP CD, and if I did, I'd lose all my stuff. Windows 7 is going to be like Vista with the endless updates, because it sucks.
