Re: Vista performance
Ok, i have narrowed it down a little more. So, i reloaded the machine.
everything was working fine. installed the suspect update, and it was still
working fine. THEN, i installed Virtual PC 2007 and BOOM! It blew up. See,
the first time i already had VPC2k7 on there and then installed the update.
So, this time i got the update first then instaleld VPC2k7. So, it's a
combination of the udpate and VirtualPC 2007 that causes this problem.
Something with the drivers that VPC2K7 installs for networking is blowing out
the network list server.
