I just received my new computer preloaded vista. I'm not real happy with it, but ya know its kinda also growing on me at the same time.
Ive been cleaning out the bloat, I'm not finished as of yet. The recovery on mine is the D drive and its almost full so Ive ordered recovery disc so I can get rid of whats on my hard drive.
I have a HP Pavilion a6010e PC
Genuine Windows Vista(TM) Home Basic
- AMD Athlon(TM) 64 3500+ (2.2GHz / 512KB L2 cache)
- FREE UPGRADE from 512 to 1024MB DDR2-533MHz(2x512)
- 160GB 7200 rpm SATA 3Gb/s hard drive
Ive added nothing. Ive been cleaning OUT files ie microsoft office trial things like that - that I have no intention to buy.
I only have 77% free on C drive
and 12% free on my D drive
Here is a link to my computer stats via pcpitstop:
Now my thoughts are and Ive voiced them to HP is that why do I have so little free space when I just purchased this and Ive not added Ive only been deleting.
Its really been a royal pain in the butt.
Here is also an excerpt from HP support:
have verified the database and this issue is occurring with the latest
PCs preinstalled with Windows Vista Operating system. This issue is due
to errors in the latest Windows Vista Operating system. I would like to
inform you that Windows vista operating system is newly launched
operating system, there are many issues working with the operating
system. Microsoft and HP are working on the issues, and will release
software updates to resolve these particular issues.
Its actually been a nightmare, nothing like 5yrs ago when I got my very first computer and new nothing at all and used windowsXP, and then everyone was screaming in similar chants about that, but as a complete novice I found no issues what so ever.
I'm loosing hair over this one!
but like I said earlier, I'm also getting kinda used to it too, and feel that after a bit of gasEX it will calm down and be just fine.
I hope this helps.
I can add HP doesnt make the grade.
