I'm having trouble customizing my vista windows the way I like them. It looks like vista has removed a lot of customizibility from their new operating system tat is pretty dissappointing to me.

Heres a quick overview of some of the customization features I find uh... Non existant:

I'm sure I cant be the only one to be having this problem but I havent been able to find a solution so far so I thought I would post it :huh: Any ideas?

Edit: [fixed] Also, I cant delete old WINDOWS folder from my old harddrive. The harddrive is connected as a slave. It has a corrupt version of windows XP (and therefore I cannot boot up using this drive). I cannot reformat the drive because there are too many (large) files on it.

I get the error "You need permission to perform this action" when trying to remove old broken OS folders from secondary harddrive:

My account is set as administrator... I would like full permission while dealing with my computer. Is it possible?[/fixed]

Edit 2: I managed to get it deleted... It was a very specific file, Flash9.ocx, that wouldnt delete. I went through the windows folder deleting everything in groups trying to figure out which wouldnt delete and low and behold...! Anyways, there was a fix for that and its gone now.

What version of MS Vista are you running?

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
