WindowsRegistryVista Have successfully edited the Windows registry on my Vista OS computer.  Have run into a problem that was giving me the, “Error 1606” having to do %\AppData\% in the registry.  Ran into to this problem a few times when trying to install a new programs.  I knew it happened when I tried to install  iTunes.  Found a different way to fix that.  What to try Lord of The Rings Online now that it was free.  Ran into the problem again.  Really wanted to try the game since it took hours to download, about 10GB’s.  Found the help fixing it on a Microsoft Support Page > here.  Tried the Microsoft Fix it.  That didn’t work.  Never edited the registry before, have looked at it and said I don’t thinks so.  Was as bad has I thought it was going to be.  Just followed the steps and every thing worked out.   Got the game installed, ready to go.  Will talk about the game in a different post since I have not played it yet.

WindowsVistaHomePremium I have been using Window Vista the Home Premium version for about a year now.  I know there is a lot of dislike about it out there.  Not sure why,  I have not had any problems with it.  I had it only crash on me once.  I moved to Vista from Windows 98 SE.  It may look a lot different, but works pretty much the same.  It is still windows after all.  I can remember when XP came out there was some back lash too because people loved 2000 and didn’t want to change.  Very thing I wanted to do on my computer I have had no problem.  I biggest problem, if you can call it a problem was trying to get my old scanner to work.  A quick Google search fixed that.  Over all I like Vista.
