Uninstalling and Reinstalling Windows Vista
I purchased Windows Vista in Feb. 2007. A couple of months ago it started
doing goofy things and Best Buy suggested that I uninstall and reinstall and
then get updates. I have backed up all my files. Question 1) After
reinstalling, which updates should I install? I saw several on the download
site. 2) Will I lose my printer hookup by doing this? Thanks.

Re: Uninstalling and Reinstalling Windows Vista
Hi,

Disconnect the printer when reinstalling, then follow the manufacturer's
recommended setup procedure after installation is complete. You should
install updates identified as critical, and then any of the optional ones
that you deem important (none of those are required, but some add function
to features you may wish to use). Install driver updates sparingly, and
preferably directly from the component manufacturer.
