btw i have since purchased vista for anyone who wants to start a flame war about piracy and i as well as many other people dont see anything wrong with trying before you buy
Cat 7.3 is the best Cat for XP since 6.3, 6.8 and 6.9. Your problem started when you wanted to turn your PC into a Dell and you wanted Vista to work flawlessly on it!
