How much RAM does this laptop have? Were you fooled into buying one
with, say, 512MB? That's normally not enough for Vista. If that is the
reason, I'd say go ahead and consider dropping back to XP.

I'll agree with the advice to install another email client. Thunderbird
is oft-recommended, and during installation, should offer to import all
your settings and mail from your MS client.

Other than the mail client, is it just the desktop interface you don't
like? Before installing another OS, switch from the foofoorah cartoon
interface to the Classic interface first.
