Ok, I am quite literally almost fed up with Vista! I love so much about it though, it's just so faulty in ways. Here's my latest issue...
When I checked my hard drive properties, where you see the pie graph that shows used vs free space, it had drastically dropped in used space. I have done extensive searching to see what was gone, and nothing is missing. I have no viruses or spyware, and my pc runs great. I recently cleaned out some stuff, but that was weeks ago. I check my properties quite frequently, and there was no drastic change in space til today. My question is, is this a typical thing with Vista? I have also noticed some other weird things that never happened with XP, and performed extensive tests everytime to try and find the problem. Everytime i come up with nothing. It's got to be a Vista flaw.....

I read the whole tutorial, but it never explained how to find out. Maybe I overlooked it...
