Validate the hours of frustration tying to VALIDATE this Dell, RRS feed

  • Question

  • Validate this version of Vista! This is ludicrus, and I am very putt off as to why a intigral proram like 'Aero' not being working is interfering such with my work!  I bought this computer new from Dell and it is very "legitimate" and to be constantly reminded it is a form of  renegage version of Vista makes me mad as ***.  GET THIS FIXED- I have spent hours trying to go things downloaded or otherwise fixerd.

     

     

    Send me a new device if need be be- just have no time to wait to acknowledge that the verrsion is illegitimate or can not run my engineering programs.

     

    -Best, and DO get back with me.
