Ever since the launch of Windows Vista in January, 2007, it has come across plenty of criticism and condemnation from the users. Here are some of the common problems related to Windows Vista-


Site Advisor is not working. An error message is displayed on the screen stating “Site Advisor has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.”


This error is generally caused by your McAfee security suite. You can try to repair the installation or you can just go ahead and uninstall this product and install other more competent products, that are free to use.


Right Click Send to Mail option is not working. It seemed to work pretty well in Windows XP. But in Windows Vista, nothing seems to happen when the option is clicked on.


In order to fix this issue and also avail this option in Windows Vista, you may follow the following instructions-

i. First of all, Click on the ‘Start’ button.

ii. Then select ‘Control Panel’.

iii. After that, go to ‘Default Programs’.

iv. Select your Mail program from the list.

v. Click on the proper section to choose defaults for this program.

vi. Lastly, be sure that the “Mail To” protocol is enabled.


Windows Easy Transfer freezes while calculating file size. When the Windows Easy Transfer feature is launched, it states that it is calculating the size of the file to be transferred. But it gets halted at that mark and doesn’t proceed to the next steps.


It has been reported that Windows Easy Transfer can be very slow. It may so happen that it is dealing with large volume of files and therefore taking so much time. If that is not the case, try relaunching the feature again and repeat the process.

Hope these solutions helped you to resolve some of your problems related to Windows Vista.
