Windows Easy Transfer Hangs at start
Where is support for this thing? I have wasted far too many hours on this
'helpful' tool from Microsoft. WET hangs just after it is started on the XP
side; it seems to use 100% CPU for a period of time, then nothing except the
first screen which stays frozen.

I've examined both setupact.log and setuperr.log only to find errors which
are unintelligible; what is the point of the logs if they don't describe the
nature of the errors? See the error log below. If ANYONE has a clue why WET
is not working, please let me know.

Thanks very much....

Same here. Many people have this problem and no one has posted a solution
anywhere. I'm pretty sure that Microsoft is aware of the problem but doesn't
have any answers.

Sorry, I did find a solution back on 9/3/07 - I formatted my Vista drive and
reloaded my reliable copy of XP/SP2 - my new hardware [Core 2 Duo based,
Intel motherboard screamer] works like a dream now.

Were there a lot of other issues that made you go back to XP?

RE: Windows Easy Transfer Hangs at start
More than I can even remember. Probably the biggest reason was poor
performance. On my brand new high-end hardware, Vista ran like a 3-legged
dog with fleas; slower than my 5 year old [somewhat upgraded Dell] that still
runs XP flawlessly.

There were also issues with drivers from ATI for my new high-end graphics
adapter; even though ATI provided Vista drivers there were problems. Now
that is not necessarily Vista's fault, but there were a series of bugs that
Microsoft was aware of, and was very slow to resolve. Even when those issues
were fixed in August I believe, MS did not make getting the fixes easy - one
had to hunt them down. A second set of 'performance' related fixes did
eventually get released near the end of August, but by then I had had enough.
I was tired of USB pointing devices causing my machine to freeze. My
wireless Keyboard/mouse are Microsoft products, as is the Intelli software
that drives them - no excuse for that.

Vista caused me to become unhappy with my new hardware, something a guy
can't easily swallow, nor should he.

There were some things in Vista that I did like, and do miss, but there were
far more things I thought were needlessly changed and were made more
difficult to find; there was no point to many of the changes, other than to
perhaps impress people with 'Vista is different'.

I'll reload Vista on my 2nd drive when SP1 is finally released, but current
indications are that no performance improvements are included. If many of
the 'known' problems are fixed that will be a step. Overall I have to wonder
what Microsoft was thinking when they released Vista in that original
[pre-SP1] condition. I know money is a factor, but where is the pride of
ownership? Surely the actual developers, coders, and testers inside
Microsoft need to have pride in there work - not just getting it done and out
the door, but done properly and proudly.

Regards....

RE: Windows Easy Transfer Hangs at start
Thanks for your input. That must’ve been incredibly frustrating. I haven’t
seen any performance issues yet but I also haven’t used it much yet. I plan
on transferring everything manually and giving up on migwiz. I’ve already
wasted too much time on it. I’d like to actually start using my new computer
now.

Thanks,

Don't expect much more in the way of 'user friendliness' out of Vista.

AAMOF, your troubles are just beginning.

Best of luck to you.

PS: I have given away two copies of VISTA Home Basic with new PC builds
for clients. About 60 days was all that I felt like spending on this overblown
piece of poorly functioning Microsoft Spyware.

The NSA Is Likely Reading Windows Software In Your Computer

By Sherwood Ross
Created Oct 17 2007 - 10:05am


Sooner or later, a country that spies on its neighbors will turn on its
own people, violating their privacy, stealing their liberties.

President Bush's grab for unchecked eavesdropping powers is the
culmination of what the National Security Agency(NSA) has spent forty
years doing unto others.

And if you're upset by the idea of NSA tapping your phone, be advised
NSA likely can also read your Windows software to access your computer.

European investigative reporter Duncan Campbell claimed NSA had arranged
with Microsoft to insert special "keys" in Windows software starting
with versions from 95-OSR2 onwards.

And the intelligence arm of the French Defense Ministry also asserted
NSA helped to install secret programs in Microsoft software. According
to France's Strategic Affairs Delegation report, "it would seem that the
creation of Microsoft was largely supported, not least financially, by
NSA, and that IBM was made to accept the (Microsoft) MS-DOS operating
system by the same administration." That report was published in 1999.

The French reported a "strong suspicion of a lack of security fed by
insistent rumours about the existence of spy programmes on Microsoft,
and by the presence of NSA personnel in Bill Gates' development teams."
It noted the Pentagon was Microsoft's biggest global client.

In the U.S., Andrew Fernandez, chief computer scientist with Cryptonym,
of Morrisville, N.C., found Microsoft developers had failed to remove
debugging symbols used to test his software before they released it.

Inside the code Fernandez found labels for two keys, dubbed "KEY" and
NSAKEY". Fernandez, though, termed it NSA's "back door" into the world's
most widely used operation system. He said this makes it "orders of
magnitude easier for the US government to access your computer."
Microsoft called the report "completely false."

Apparently, agenices of the military-industrial complex take on a life
of their own. NSA, for example, has long engaged in commercial espionage
eavesdropping on European businesses to benefit U.S. firms, according to
William Blum, author of "Rogue State"(Common Courage Press).

NSA achieves this through ECHELON("E") -- an intelligence cartel
dominated by the U.S. with Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and
Canada as junior partners. Launched in the 1970s to monitor Cold War
data, "E" morphed into "a network of massive, highly automated
interception stations covering the globe," Blum said.

Using "E", NSA has spied on German and French businesses which, as a
result, have come off second best against their American competitors.
Among companies targeted were Thomson S.A., of Paris, Airbus Industrie
of Blagnac Cedex, France, and the German wind generator-manufacturer
Enercon. "We know this technology("E") is there and it is being used on
us," Josef Tarkowski, former head of counter-espionage for the German
government told The London Sunday Times Internet Edition.

"Like a mammoth vacuum cleaner in the sky," Blum documents, NSA's
continuously orbiting satellites "sucks it all up:home phone, office
phone, cellular phone, email, fax, telex∑satellite transmissions,
fiber-optic communications traffic, microwave links∑voice, text,
images." These are then processed by high-powered computers at Ft.
Meade, Md., NSA headquarters.

Billions of messages are sucked up daily, Blum writes, including those
by presidents, prime ministers, the UN Secretary-General, the pope, the
Queen of England, transnational corporation executives, and foreign
embassies. It's been estimated "E" sifts through 99.9999 percent of all
global communications to get at the 0.0001 percent that is of interest
to it.

Each of the English-speaking partners, Blum asserts, "is breaking its
own laws, those of other countries, and international law -- the
absence of court-issued warrants permitting surveillance of specific
individuals is but one example."

"E" works by mining for key words that are extracted by computers and
passed along to humans for evaluation.

Some NSA activities came to light during the countdown to the U.S.
invasion of Iraq in 2003. At the time, the U.S. listened in on the
private conversations of UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, UN weapons
inspectors in Iraq, and on the deliberations about Iraq of all members
of the UN Security Council. It also spied on organizations such as
Christian Aid and Amnesty International. Earlier, it was said to have
spied on U.S. Senator Strom Thurmond(R.-S.C.)

Less well known has been E's spying on foreign firms. In 1998, German
wind generator-maker Enercon developed a cheaper way to generate
electricity from wind power, but its U.S. rival, Kenetech, said it had
patented a near-identical process, and got a court order to ban Enercon
sales in the U.S., reporter Blum writes. NSA's role was exposed when
one of its employees revealed he had stolen Enercon's secrets by
tapping telephone and computer links between its research and
production units.

Again, NSA, with CIA aid, Blum and other sources say, obtained covert
information from French Airbus Industrie that enabled its U.S. rivals
Boeing and McDonnell Douglas to win a $1 billion contract. "The same
agencies also eavesdropped on Japanese representatives during
negotiations with the U.S. in 1995 over auto parts trade," Blum added.

The Sunday Times also reported Thomas-CSF, a French electronics maker,
lost a $1.4 billion deal to supply Brazil with radar because the U.S.
intercepted details of the negotiations and passed them to Raytheon, the
U.S. firm that makes the Patriot missile. Raytheon won the contract.

"E" is headquartered on British soil on a 560-acre base at Menwith Hill,
in North Yorkshire, the largest listening post in the world, taken over
by NSA in 1966. As well, the U.S. operates an enormous radar and
communications complex at Bad Aibling, near Munich, that is also an NSA
intercept station, and a dozen signals intelligence bases in Japan.

NSA also read other peoples' mail by inking a secret agreement with
Crypto AG, a Swiss maker of encryption technology, to rig their
machines before sale so that when foreign governments used the random
encryption key the enciphered message would be clandestinely
transmitted to NSA.

The result: when Iran, Iraq, Libya, Yugoslavia and more than 100 other
countries sent messages to their embassies, trade offices, and armed
forces around the world via telex, fax, and radio, NSA spooks could read
them. NSA, by the way, employs some 30,000 workers and, if it were a
private corporation, would rank among the top 50 on the "Fortune 500."
It's budget, of course, is secret but it's a bet NSA is cheerfully
gobbling up ump**** billions of your tax dollars every year. Of course,
other countries today emulate NSA's activities. China, for example, is
said to have hacked into British defense and foreign policy secrets and
the German weekly Der Spiegel recently reported German computers at the
chancellery, and foreign, economic, and research ministries are infected
by Chinese espionage programs.

Rather than shutting down or curbing NSA activities, President Bush is
expanding NSA's role. Even if a rubber stamp Congress goes along, not
everybody approves. The American Bar Association, our largest lawyer
group, has denounced Bush's warrantless domestic surveillance program.

"The issue is whether the president can unilaterally conduct secret
surveillance, taking into his hands the awesome power to invade
privacy," ABA President Michael Greco said.

Greco may be upset because the Bill of Rights declares: "The right of
people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects,
against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and
no warrants shall issue, but upon probably cause, supported by oath or
affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and
the persons or things to be seized."

But what did George Washington know compared to George Bush?
