  • Hi Jelsie,

     

      You pressed copy, but did you Paste into the forum post?  you can press the '"ctrl" and "v" keys (at the same time) to Paste anything that you have Copied.

     

      To no longer use Vista, you will need a Licensed copy of some other Operating System. Once you have obtained the Operating System of your choice, install that OS over Vista. The new OS should overwrite or delete the Vista files as it is installing.

     

      However, if you would like me to troubleshoot your Vista issue, first, please feel free to paste the Diagnostic Report into this thread.
