    My quick adive for anyone using Vista 64bit, if you don't know how to tweak anything don't get Vista then, stay with the old XP system, it doesn't take much know how to tweak Vista 64bit or any version of vista for that matter.
    Just google it.....

    I don't see why not.
    We had a whole set of tweaks for XP from Dave Laborde.
    Here is the link:

    If it pertains to Video Editing enhancements, especially with Edius, I'm sure it will be permitted. I hope that Dave does a set of tweaks for Vista.

    Well the subject is using VISTA for EDIUS and I was just stating how things can mess it up if you are going to go down that road and run it with EDIUS.

    There are some great tweaks for VISTA but I had better not share them here then.

    Vista will always eat more RAM on idle. You just have to live with it and buy more RAM (it's cheap!).
    StormDave, they put all that rubbish on them for advertising deals thay have with 3rd party companies, plus they get good deals with microsoft as well.
    I do agree with you though, never buy a system with Vista already setup, or XP in that case, sometimes the partions can be a pain to fget rid of as well, but it can be done.

    I agree what has virus software to do with anything?

    We're really straying here, guys. Let's keep this at least somewhat relative to running EDIUS..

    Yeh you are correct Rusty.
    Nortons is a virus and the only bit of good software they have left now is the Nortons Removal Tool to uninstalls any Norton products off your computer.

    I use a free firewall and a free virus scanner that I run when I feel like it.

    Because schlocky comp-u-builders get kickbacks from schlubby software providers (norton, aol, you name it)

    I got Vista Ultimate running on a play machine and find after turning as many things as I could find off it still uses around 500megs just at idol. There must be still more things to find as the CPU usage keeps moving as well in the task manager. Apart from that it's running pretty good.

    My main XP machine sits on about 186 megs in the task manager at idol.

    Don't worry, our computers will soon be moist and chewy like cake so we can just eat 'em while we're working.

    Mac users will be envious, and we will run 3 instances of Edius while we do the laundry.

    I pasted the 26 character 128bit WEP security key for my home network

    Vista dis not accept and told me I need to use 5 or 13 characters

    I said get lost

    this went on for hours

    I finally typed the 26 characters and Vista accepted and it worked

    so, what happened to the 5 or 13 characters

    it appears, copy/paste is not allowed and one must type, possibly to improve my typing speed which I know is too slow

    I too have turned off most things I could find but the thing that is still puzzling for me is that I can easily access files on two win2k PC on the network but can only get files off one hard drive on my old editing PC which has XP . THe other 4 hard drives seem to have exactly the same sharing setup!!!!! I would love to just turn off all the wonderful security measures!!!!!!

    yes, maybe I need to get used to the interface, I have only had it for 4 weeks and I am still getting annoyed about silly changes from XP such as the many new sections of event viewer and the automatically disappearing/reappearing +icons in front of folders that have subfolders, what an animation disaster, that makes me angry each time, so far I have not found a way to kill this annoyance, I killed many others already

    That's strange Anton, Vista is a lot easier to setup than XP, Wireless is even easier my friend. I think once people get use to vista they should be wright, it's getting use to the different interface that I find puts a lot of people off it.

    Cheers
