    in system configeration, how do i get a list of everything that is in my computer. I have xp in one computer and when i hit start,run type in sysedit it brings up the list. In the one i am working on when i do the above it brings up the autoexec and other stuff. how do i get the other computer to just bring up the list.? Hope this makes sense

    Btw, what’s your opinion about vista and xp? which one is better? in my point of view, xp is better than vista on system, but i never see the differences on the theme.
