    Brand new HP with vista, side bar problems and won't shut down. I'm assuming that a program won't quit so windows won't close. The sidebar shows the same consecutive gadget 4 times, if you try to x-out of one the computer crashes and locks up. The comp is 2 weeks old! Can anyone tell me what the!!!??? This thing locks up everytime I try to shut down.

    also how much ram are you using? vista needs a gig to run properly, then you should have at least two to run all programs and vista .I don't know why Microsoft says this OS can run on 512 minimum when all itwill dois struggle along

    hope this helps
