Why do you want to return to Windows Vista, it is a downgrade. Windows 7 is better than Windows Vista.

At the risk of appearing that everyone is jumping on you.....
Aside from a few minor differences in appearance, Windows 7 is everything Windows Vista is and then some. It generally just works better and is less annoying than Vista.

I built a new system for 7 since my old one was an old xp machine (orig. before SP1), but even before I built it, I ordered the pre-buy 50.00 deal they had for upgrading to 7 since I knew my daughter was going to want to upgrade her Vista laptop when it was out. At first she was nervous that she would not like it or have a problem getting adjusted to it, but after she tried it on my computer while home on winter break, she asked if I could install it the same night. The upgrade went smooth and she never looked back. When she got back to school, she could not print, but simply deleting the printer and allowing windows to reinstall the printer (5 minutes) everything was perfect.
Give yourself a chance to adjust and you will probably like it better.

In my opinion, Vista with two SPs may be better than Win 7 with no SP as yet.

Therefore, OP may be right in wishing to return to Vista.

If you directly upgraded to Win 7 over Vista, there may be an entry in Control Panel \ Programs \ Remove Programs \ Uninstall Win 7. Look for it. I am not sure about this entry because I have never upgraded. I have always clean installed OSs.

Hello Everyone and Thanks for the replies. Actually it's a computer my neice uses and since it was upgraded she's not been able to log in to some sites where Java and Adobe Flash player is needed. I think Win 7 is better too, so I've been playing around with it. I installed Java and Flash player and it wouldn't work on her sites, so I tried Firefox and it worked Great!! Then I went back and enabled IE 8 and the 32-bit IE browser would work, but the 64-bit IE browser still wouldn't load the pages she wanted, but worked ok just going from page to page. (The Win 7 upgrade is 64-bit) If anyone could help me get this issue fixed I think 7 will be great! Is there any way to take out the 64-bit IE browser and leave the 32-bit IE browser? Thanks in advance..

Tim

You can not return as such. You can only reload the Vista OS from sources such as OEM partition or DVD media.


You can't mix and match IE. Might be a security deal. What kind of sites is she trying to view. Did you see these issues?

You can also run a virtual machine to keep W7 and run at the same time a Vista maybe depending on how you obtained the Vista OS.

Thanks Jefro, I didn't think I could, but I was just wondering if there was a way to roll the computer back to the original factory settings like we could on Win XP, by holding down the Ctrl key & F11 at the same time when starting up. I have set mine back to to origanal factory settings like that before, but it was win xp.

Yes I saw that the site would not load with the 64-bit browser as I stated in my post above when "I" tried firefox and it work great. Then I retryed IE browsers. T was a game applet at pogo.com I think I just have to wait until Adobe Flash Player comes out with their next update/upgrade that will also be compatibale with win 7, or the 64-bit IE broswer.

I have one more issue or problem, when I start or restart this computer a black screen comes up and says...

"Diskette drive 0 seek failure"

"Press F1 to continue, F2 to enter serup"

Anyone know how I can get rid of this sreen, so it'll start normal..

Thanks
Tim

Sure ... go into your system's BIOS & disable the floppy drive as your primary boot device, you probably don't even have a floppy drive.

Thanks to all for the help...

I believe that Microsoft included two internet explorers (32bit and 64bit) since they know that all websites will not support it for a while yet. I generally use Firefox and have tried both IE's, I also find that some sites do not work with 64bit, but the ones that do, load very fast. The ones that generally do not, appear to be graphic or video in nature. Eventually, all will upgrade, as well as patches will fix. Please note that Adobe says that you need to download 2 versions of their reader if you are using both browsers (if I remember correctly, it's been a couple of months).

Sorry, Fingers may be correct.

"Windows 64-bit operating system comes with both 32-bit and 64-bit Internet Explorer (IE) browsers. 32-bit IE comes as a default. There are different versions of Java software available for download depending on whether you are using 32-bit or 64-bit IE browsers."

From Sun's page.http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/java_win64bit.xml

For some reason I felt W7 64 bit only came with the 64 bit IE.

It should be the 32 bit by default but she may have used the 64 bit.
