Oh man... I was a borderline expert when it came to XP, but I decided to bite the bullet and leave my comfort zone when I bought a new PC. Needless to say I regret it. Here are my problems: 1. Cannot update HP printer drivers. No matter how many times I tell Vista to "Allow", my downloads of HP updates fail. Further, I've tried allowing the update site in both my antivirus program AND my firewall, but to no avail. Any suggestions? 2a. iTunes. I like to use iTunes because I use the AirPort Express peripheral to stream music to other rooms in my house... plus I've managed my iPods and iPhone with it for so long that I've come to kind of like it. That being said, ever since I moved my operations to my new computer, the audio on the computer fails (seemingly) at random. The only way to restore audio, whether it's in Media Player, a browser, or some other program is to close iTunes and then reboot it. This makes me think it might be some issue with QuickTime, but I've installed subsequent updates and the problem is still existent. 2b. When streaming music to AirPort Express, the stream seems to be interrupted when the computer goes idle. I'm assuming this is some function of the power save mode; how can I address this? 2c. When using AirPort Express, iTunes locks up if I try to revert to "My Computer" for speaker selection OR if I deselect Airport Express under Multiple Speakers. The same is not true if I deselect my computer speakers; iTunes continues to operate just fine. I'm thinking most of the problems are related to permissions... but apparently I haven't found the correct way to address these access issues such that the problem is rectified. I realize this is Post #1 for me, but any help would be much appreciated nonetheless.
