Dealing with the wide range of computer problems that can strike at any time can be a challenging proposition for many individuals. The various issues that can arise with even new computer systems covers a lot of territory and someone would have to be a trained technician in order to know how to immediately solve all of them. Actually, even trained computer technicians have to troubleshoot and do research to find the ultimate solution for many PC problems.
Microsoft is certainly a leader in the technology sector and offers a huge variety of excellent computer related services and software. Microsoft Office and the Windows Operating Systems are among some of the most popular and widely used programs the world has ever seen, and they do not appear to be going away anytime soon, that is for sure.
However, while all computer users have a need for reliable computer support and help, users that have computers with Microsoft Vista as the operating system may have an even greater requirement for Vista support help than the average computer user does for their system. This is because Vista is known to have a greater frequency of problems compared to other Microsoft operating systems. While the concept of Vista had good intentions, the final product and actual experience of users has shown the Vista operating system is much more problematic than other options before and since the Vista release.
One of the broader intentions for Vista, when Microsoft was going through the development process, was to create a more secure operating system. Of course, it was also their intention to deliver a more secure operating system while not having a negative effect on the user experience. Unfortunately, things did not exactly work out that way. Part of the frustration with Vista comes from random errors connected to the UAC or User Access Controls.
The design of Vista was meant to prevent unauthorized users, malicious programs or other threats from being able to make changes to major parts of the system files. The coding in the final Vista product resulted in authorized users with administrative authorization constantly receiving prompts to perform even the simplest of tasks, such as changing the brightness of their screen or adjusting volume controls.
This obviously created all kinds of frustration as it resulted in even simple tasks taking three and four times longer than they should and constant interruptions while trying to get things done. This was problematic enough, but there are also other random authorization errors that can happen frequently as well. Many of the errors seem to happen without cause and identifying the core cause of the problem has proven to be difficult for many Vista users.
UAC errors are only one Vista issue, many users also experienced a significant reduction in performance when switching to this operating system, even if they had similar computer specs as they had with a different OS. Microsoft clearly did not spend enough time ensuring the base code for Vista was done in a way that allowed users to experience better performance than they had in the past.
In fact, Vista provides exactly the opposite. It is very resource intensive and requires a lot of a computer’s resources, even when the system is relatively idle. Many users report 20% or 40% usage statistics on Vista systems even when it is idle and they are not doing anything. This results in slower overall performance, slow execution of commands and overall a less than ideal user experience. If you have become accustomed to working on a system that is relatively responsive and quick to react to commands, then working on a Vista system is likely to become extremely frustrating very quickly.
Additionally, continually demanding a high level of performance from components of a computer system will mean greater wear and tear on a machine. This will ultimately lead to a shorter lifespan and require users to replace parts or even their entire system much sooner than normal.
If you have a Vista system all is not lost and there are some things you can do to fix the problems within the software as well as optimize performance. Although, it will require some knowledge and know how in order to access all the different settings required and make all the various system tweaks. Additionally, you will also have to take into account any third-party software that you have installed on the system. Antivirus programs, firewalls, office applications and similar programs will need to have settings changed and ensure they are optimized to match any changes you make within the core system settings.
These solutions also apply to the speed of your internet connection and how fast your online connection can be. While network settings are always important for ensuring security and speed is optimized on a computer system, on computers with Vista it is vital to make sure your network is optimized. If not, you may experience very slow internet speeds and it can be frustrating even trying to open or respond to email. Working with a slow internet connection day in and day out is not something you need to endure.
