I think you will find the window that pops up will ask what you want to do with it, but it will no longer have the option to run the exe file in that list
Just the usual ones of exploring etc
You sure about that?

Perhaps the Clarksons of the world should go and explain to the relatives of the family killed in the recent, and very tragic pile up on the M6 why cutting back on speed cameras is a good idea, and why it's unfair that the police fine people for breaking the speed limit.
It was my understanding that the traffic was slow, due to an earlier accident, so please tell the assembled masses how a speed camera on that part of the M6, would have prevented it from happening?
I can see Gregs point, everyone called foul at MS for being semi sneaky with its updates, but for them to update the software silently, without informing the user is a bit worrying.
Of course it would be interesting to see if they could update Chrome, on Vista with UAC working, I wonder if it would throw up a prompt?
Europe ahead of US
Does Jobs say these things forgetting in Europe we are leaps and bounds above the US in terms of our mobile technology?
Surely it should be up to teh network the iphone is on rather than Jobs deciding? T-Mobile on the right package allow VOIP so why cant the iphone be used for that.
These things happen
Like someone said its a beta, and I never remeber reading anything where Google said you get 100% uptime with any of their services.
John Delaney - This was due to a fault on the Be/o2 network, two stories one is of a fire - very unlikly. The other option and the better one was a massive firewall config cock up, o2 stores lost connection to their internatl network which runs over a Be cloud, similar home broadband was the same. Some ports work eg VPN/RDC but port 80 was out.
Sounds like port 80 got blocked on the firewall, at the same time locking out o2 from it, so sent a man with a laptop to console up to fix
Its not that they will effect the planes, but the blades of the turbines are known to scatter the RADAR waves and can produce ghosts.
So this could be a problem when you have a stack of 747s landing
Hmm PPC only able to do Outlook? Last time I checked it could do Outlook, IMAP, POP3
Stange I dont see Blackberry supporting anything else other than its own service.
So Apple done have an monopoly? When was the last time you saw an Apple mac sold via Apple that only had XP installed?
Apple have their own monopoly on mac hardware, and they are not forced to bundle IE with OSX.
Ok so MS dont conform to standards, so, its the webdesigners fault, if they wrote pages to THE standards and not the IE standards then MS would have to change the way IE worked, but while people are too lazy to do it the correct way, why should MS change?
Never paid for one
My last company the boss paid for, company had 50 employees, always had a large xmas meal at a posh hotel, free beer and drink on him till 7pm ish when he tend to call it a night, but since we started at 1pm, its not too bad.
With my current company we have been to London 2 years running, seen a west end show, medivial banquet etc.
So let me get this right..
Ill be able to buy an album on a 5gb flash stick for £10ish. Hopefully I will be able to format it and get a cheap flash stick :)
Is it such a big deal?
If this only happens with the 65,535 how often in daily calcualtions is that figure actually arrived at?
Ok it was a cock up on the display of the number, but the sum does come to the right number though
Recovery + SOL
To be honest if your mobo dies and you do not have a backup of your data that is on your laptop then you deserve to lose your data :)
Do it the manual way
To M who was complaining about downloading them all again manually for each PC, not true, you can download all the updates from the Windows Catalogue and write a batch script to install them one after another
Must be a lucky one
I guess I must be one of the lucky ones. I have been using Vista since last November first on my 3.2Ghz EE with 1Gb ram then on my new Core 2 box and I have never had any problems at all.
All my games, programmes work fine, I have no issues to speak off other than I so much prefer it to XP.
Vista does work with SBS you just need to make some changes on it, much like you do to a 2000 DC when joining a 2k3 server. So that is a bit of lame excuse.
Of the Vista that has been deployed never known it to randomly reboot. If it is using the hdd a lot turn off VSS and Indexing services this will cut the drive usage to a minimum.
"Unbelievably 3 machines were destroyed oy the OS! mostly it appears to be heat issues, popping motherboards, power supplies and graphics cards but Vista appears to thrash and trash hard disks."
If that did happen then you should look at the cooling on those PCs, I find it almost impossible an os can do that.
I also fail to belive Vista caused your PCs to fail.
