    I tried installing Heroes 5, Warhammer and other games in it but none of them worked properly. except for Warcraft 3. yeah your right. I should have tried something first but I'm not sure what.

    I just got annoyed at it. I shouldn't have bandwagoned now I'm being burned alive here. =_="

    i think this is not Microsoft fault ,this is because you upgrade or make new installation of your , or your graphic or sound driver are not properly install in vista, that is why your game has problem with vista.

    You make no sense.
    If the hardware manufacturer hasn't released proper drivers, how is it Microsoft's fault?

    Using DoSBox is cheating :P Even if I do play my Tie Fighter collectors edition on it >_>

    That said, I'm playing Heroes III... and have played IV and V on this Vista comp... its easily done lol.

    Most likely your problem:

    Not smart enough to turn UAC off.
    Not installing things on an Admin account.
    Haven't bothered patching using windows update.
    Running Norton Antivirus or some other Antivirus which is more of a hindrance than help.

    As Jyuu has said, Vista works fine. I have had zero complaints with it except that some older programs haven't updated to Vista )=

    The majority of games work just fine and dandy. If they play in XP they've played in Vista in my experience. Vista's DOS limitation kinda blows for even older games but hey, thats what DoSBox is for.

    P.S. Why would you WANT to install Warhammer Mark of Chaos???

    Been the case since way before that, not Vista.
    I've been running Betrayal at Krondor on just about every operating system you can imagine and the problem lies within the fact that they completely removed any incarnation of MSDOS in Windows NT 4.0 and higher (although I can be wrong and it could have been earlier than that).

    FYI
    NT 5.0 = Win 2000
    NT 5.1 = Win XP
    NT 6.0 = Win Vista

    If you have a problem running a certain old software, try thinking of Windows Vista as Windows NT and apply the same rules (thus having to use DOSBox for old DOS-based games).

    On the subject of security.

    In my opinion, there is no real point in installing extra security software on Windows Vista if you don't mind the UAC.
    A hardware firewall is always better than a software firewall.
    Windows Defender is really good.
    Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 is FREE and EASY to use if you want to be completely anal about opening suspicious files or visiting dubious websites (cracks/keygens/whatevercrap).
    NoScript plugin for Firefox works wonders.


    Why cause any slowdowns by installing anti-malware when some simple solutions exist? Granted, Virtual PC can be intimidating for some, but it's not like you spend all your time doing crap. Else you'd be on a Linux-based OS. >.>
