    Sorry but pretty common post, look around AD and the web and you'll see numerous similar copmplaints with Vista. Here's just one quote from a post that mirrors yours: "I recently got a new computer with vista on it..HUGE mistake..this OS is horrid. It is built to block any and all P2P sharing programs. Its built to block any compatible programs and hardware to be honest. Its a money maker..You will have to buy all new "Microsoft" programs and hardware in order for things to run smoothly. And even then you will still have the typical microsoft crashes with Vista. But back to P2P programs...If thats what you want..get rid of Vista and go back to XP."

    I believe I did read something about Newsgroups working with NewsLeecher and Vista but I can't swear to it. Someone else may know for sure.
