Yeah you'll have to do that for alot of internet programs and such. It's a pain, but I liek the way Vista looks, so I deal with it. If it become unbareable you can downgrade.

I agree. And I wouldn't recommend a Mac to anyone, unless they record, but that's the only thing it's good for.

Try finding Halo for a mac cocksucker.

That's weird- I have halo on this laptop, and I'm on vista- no problems at all.

The only things I could suggest are right clicking on halo startup, then choosing to run as administrator. Also try using compatibility mode, and set it to XP SP2.

If none of these things work, you should be able to find manual patches for halo on the gearbox website.

Disable UAC. (User Account Control)

Or right click the patch .exe and "run as administrator".

And do the compatibility mode settings like rabid said on all older games just in case.
