what about putting it on a laptop? the make is hp pavilion dv1000.
I think part of the issue is the defaults that windows systems adopt. Lowest case denominator - the settings which will cause most people the least trouble ( and perhaps reduce any support requirements).
Often the default settings have resulted in open systems rather than a default state of secure and then let the owner / user open up the system. The latter approach requires more user knowledge or better help systems.

About the point of the new improved Wordpad: This Vista machine's copy of Wordpad does not open Word docs. So, what was the point of having Wordpad anyway?
Also, a registered copy of Vista can not download and install the older functional copy of Wordpad from Microsoft.
Believe me, I've been trying for a couple of months now. You can just say I'm wrong. But, unless you show me how I can get back to the quick little notes I used to take with Wordpad I'll just have to find some non-MS software to do this.
My next attempt will be to try to get the copy of Wordpad from an older windows version.
The lack of overhead and speed made Wordpad my favorite for quickly browsing files. I used to set file associations to VIEW doc files with Wordpad as the default double click. Then, I would set MS Word with the EDIT option.
I sure miss Wordpad. ...Darn you Microsoft.
