I have recently bought a new PC with Vista installed. I am having problems with running programs and DL'ing them from the net. The first I am trying to access is Victor Chandler Poker (www.vcpoker.com) and the same thing is happening to other programs. Basically, the site gives a link to a setup.exe and as usual, you can choose to Run or to Save the exe. When I choose Run, the DL takes place then *nothing* happens. No new process even attempts to start, nothing. If I choose to Save, the exe DL's, then Vista tries to copy from temp to correct location, taking about 3 minutes for a 165k file, then completes, but the file isn't there.
Is it just me, or does Vista have a miriad of issues that make it not worth using right now? If I can't get any joy, I think I'll reinstall XP or convert to Linux
Any help is greatly appreciated, I've wasted 6 hours hammering my head against the wall, thanks in advance,
