Make Vista Suck Less (Now with Window 8)

vista_trooperfind psychsoftpc on facebookOkay, Vista can be great, but we know at times Vista sucks. And if you are one of the many people who bought a "Vista Capable" PC from somebody else (because we never made cheap machines like that) that actually wasn't, well we empathize, (If you're interested in what went on with this, look here). While we can't help if you got stuck with one of these machines short of selling you one of ours, we gave our Agent Lexy here the task of scouring the Internet for ways to make Vista and Windows 8 suck less. Here's what she found.

Make Windows 8 look like Windows again

Windows 8 is here and, with it, the smartphone style interface. On a desktop? Seriously? if you're like us, you hate the phone style interface. Oh, and they changed Windows Explorer, too. No more nice, clean "look at my files on my hard drive". If you want to go back to the good old windows 7 style interface, the one you're used to, the one that actually looks like the Windows you've known since Windows 95, desktop and all, use this free utility. The nice thing about this is you can switch back and forth, so if you ever want your PC to look like a phone, you can go back. But really, why would you??
