    I have Windows Vista but prefer XP. As for the pop ups your'e having they have nothing to do with Vista. Have you scanned your computer for Malware? Here are two FREE programs to download and get rid of any nasties on your computer. Download the FREE versions:

    A lot of those pop ups are caused by mal ware or spyware. you need to look at your security -- what virus checker are you running?? Try running spybot search and destroy-- you can down load it from the net for free. Windows are bringing out Windows 7 soon it is much better than vista bit more like XP
