I just set up a Compaq laptop with Vista Premium installed on it for my 16 year old .... she's use to XP home too, but isn't having any problems navigating through Vista.

I bought Avira Antivirus Premium Suite (it has a firewall and real time protection). I used http://basconotw.mvps.org/SymRem.htm to remove Symantec.
I don't know what all you have running at start up and in the background, but too many unnecessary services will slow your machine down.
Take a look at BlackViper's suggestions on how to set these services:
Vista will start out slow to begin with, but once it's got it's 'prefetch' sorted, it will just hum along

You're right, I'm sure it's not what you're used to and you're probably not comfortable with some of the features. But wishing for Windows XP back on your new laptop isn't exactly the greatest idea in the world. XP home and professional have both been slated for discontinuation of retail sales. Meaning that they are no longer producing the operating system. http://www.microsoft...le/default.mspx
There's absolutely nothing wrong with Vista. Of course XP is going to be faster, it was designed to run on hardware that's nine years old.
*Edit* not really trying to be pushy with my opinion on this. Just get a little winded hearing the rap this OS gets.
