Default Vista Uninstalled for now :thumbdwn:

Was very excited when our university gave free upgrade to Vista ultimate over the weekend. I do a lot of encoding on my pc. Anyway long story short, none of my encoding tools worked, Nero didnt install, nvidia drivers were flaky, media center caused blue bombs, transcode 360 keeps crashing. I only play 2 games on my PC, Company of Heroes and Call of Juarez, both kept crashing with BSODs. So I am back to XP Media Center 2005, will see how things improve over the next 1 year before trying again. That also means no upgrade to a Directx 10 card till then.

strange I have nero and every program in the package works perfectly
I have created many dvds in vista from the videos I have in nero.
Also media center and transcoder360 works like a charm no problem at all...

Also installed vista and nero on 2 other computers worked great... Are you sure you have the latest version?

Running Vista Ultimate 32bit

maybe its just something quirky with my machine. But as long as XP is working without any problems, I dont see any reason to keep hitting my head against the wall, trying to get things working...
