And in the comments, yet another Vista victim:
| Recently installed Microsoft Vista Ultimate which I now see as a
| big mistake. I understand the need to deal with piracy, however it
| has gone too far and as a consumer I am looking for other options
| to dump Microsoft completely. I thought I did everything by the
| book until my computer was shut down by Microsoft. I did not change
| above the allowed hardware and Microsoft tech support tried to
| charge me $60.00 to deal with their problem which they created. In
| keeping my system up to date I had flashed the bios and the
| software now saw my registered copy as illegal. Microsoft techs had
| no idea that flashing th bios could do that. Once I pay the
| outrageous price in this case $350.00 I want Microsoft out of my
| computer unless I invite them in. Installing Vista was a big
| mistake and we have paid the price to go back to XP on several
Vista is a plague.
