Hasta la Vista, Vista!

I’ve had it up to here! While Windows Vista is cool and has some very neat new features, I could not take it anymore. It was killing my box! I could not click on anything without the pc choking and the system fan kicking in and all my window turning white for several seconds. My box is not the latest and greatest but it is by far not a wimp either. I was ready to throw the thing out the window. So I paid a visit to my very good friend “format c:” and reinstalled the trusted Windows XP MCE 2005 and my pc thanked me with a sigh of relief. The next upgrade I make with be of the fruity version, say maybe an Apple? Or maybe I should just run one of those fancy new web OSs and let every pc in the world be my pc.

Print Monitor is Unknown

When installing a networked printer on Windows Vista RTM you recieve a “The Specified Print Monitor is Unknown error”.

This is what fixed the problem for me.
1. Enable UAC (Go into the control panel and type UAC in the search bar then follow through the ‘wizard’) – restart your computer when prompted
2. Install the printer
3. Disable UAC
