Ive used Vista and I can definately tell a marked performance difference difference between XP and Vista...MY 3dMArk 05 score went down 3000 POINTS!!!!!(slightly better than that now with better drivers) and my chipset drivers crashed the system lol...and the vista RAM factor is simply HUGE...The basicv footprint (without ANY additions apps is over 300mb easily and when I have my system fully setup the footprint at bootup is close to 750MB!!!!!...XP Pro SP2 had a footprint of just over 500mb.

For someone who depends on system speed and GFX speed I would still wait for a little while as drivers are still pretty **** in my opinion.

3000 points... it's too much. :)

Which driver version have you installed Adrian ?


Your playing a very dangerous game Dave!


Thanks for the secure desktop switch tip. You know Vista deeply buddy !!! :P


Why don't you just admit it and come out of the closet?

I used Vista x64 Ultimate for around or just over 3 months, it has some good points but too many drawbacks to be on my main machine, one major issue I had was the repair options when needed, due to the fact I knew I would have to repair the OS eventually for people I decided to tinker heavily and work with breaking/fixing, didn't like the repair side of it, time equals money and with Vista time has been added although it looks like the opposite, but it depends on how/what exactly is broken.

Anywayz......rather than disable UAC, there is a better alternative. Instead, you can just disable the secure desktop switch that causes the flicker.

Follow the steps below to disable UAC secure desktop:

1. Click on the Start Button and type in secpol.msc and hit Enter.
2. Navigate through Local Policies and Security Options.
3. Scroll to the bottom and right click on "User Account Control: Switch to the secure desktop when prompting for elevation" and select Properties.
4. Set the option to Disabled and hit OK.


Actually, I found a much better way to stop that from annoying me. I deleted Vista and the problem is now well and truely gone.

Got really bored of Vista very quickly I'm afraid to say. Back on XP x64 now.
