Grrrrr to Windows Vista

UGH!!

I hate Windows Vista...seriously. I got my Dell laptop two summers ago and it's a great computer...except for the fact that it uses Windows Vista.

Why, you ask? Well let me tell you!

Downloads.

After I started using my laptop, my friend introduced me to a site where I could get cute free fonts. So I visited the site and downloaded some awesome fonts and never looked back. Well, here recently I've found new fonts and digital scrapbook material that I wanted to download and use (hadn't tried downloading anything in at least a year). Problem...now my computer won't open the downloads. It makes me SOOO mad!! At first, I checked out my default program and it was set to Microsoft Office, which opened things and just gave me a pop up box says the download was missing something or invalid or some crap.   So I changed my default to Internet Explorer....and it still doesn't open my downloads :(   Even worse...if I click "open" then my computer goes crazy and 15 different windows pop up and flash crazily. Through all that madness, I have to be extremely patient through this virus-like action to find the file, send to trash, then permenantly delete, for the madness to stop.

I googled...and no one has any answers. There were forums where other people had trouble downloading because of Vista.

I'm sad and don't know what to do...end of story :(

Thanks for allowing me to vent, haha.

Sorry to hear you are having issues with your computer! Got to love modern technology and its glitches. Are you still having problems? If so, let me know, maybe I can figure it out, I love solving computer issues..don't know why..maybe that's part of the reason why I am going back to finish my degree in graphic design..hehe.
