    In case of keeping a track for the system crash you can use the inbuilt calender of Windows Vista. It is opened by double clicking on the clock in the task manager. This will help you to troubleshoot bugs or data loss. The problems are common and there are many patches available for the same. You can download it from the Microsoft site. For a easy way turn on your Automatic Update.

    It is a common problem with some firewire devices, which cause blue screen in Windows Vista. To counter this, there is a patch normally offered by Windows Update but not all the time. That's why you must manually recover from the site. And if you have any file or any driver which you want to delete manually then using cmd can be the best way. Just open a command prompt, move to the directory that file with the command cd. Change attributes of files: attrib -s -r -h nameoffile.txt.

    Right now there is a option available in Windows Vista to convert any audio disc to normal mp3 or wma. This can be done by using Windows Media player. If you buy CDs on the market and want to keep on your hard drive then you can use Rip music from CD option in the player. Windows Media player will consume some time as it process each file one by one and converts them to normal wma file. This file is readable in most of the DVD players.
