reinstalling windows vista without installation dvd/cd



    I was given a used laptop already installed with windows vista ultimate.  I've deleted all of the programs and documents - but i'm having some performance isues so I'd like to reintstall vista -- but i don't have a windows vista install cd, the previous owner said it didn't come with one when purchased new.  How can i uninstall/reinstall windows vista?

  • I recently bought an Acer laptop with Vista preinstalled.  There was a problem in shutting off my laptop and now I get error messages when trying to download software and I cannot get virus protection with Norton Protection Center.  This isn't the only issue I'm having with Vista.  If the cursor crosses a hyperlink or button, it will usually act like I have intentionally tried click on the links.  It's really frustrating when several emails get deleted because I tried deleting one or having to undo something because I haven't found where I can turn this "feature" off.
