    Default Chinese Input in Windows Vista / Vista Help Needed

    Quick question for anyone who might be able to advise.
    How does one input chinese (simplified) characters in Windows Vista (Home-Basic)

    I really really really dislike Vista...

    Cheers,

    in windows xp go to text services and input language and then add the chinese language. Keyboardlayout/ime value is : "chinese (simplified) - Micrsoft pinyin ime 3.0"
    Vista shouldn't be that far off i think.

    I really really really abhor Vista.

    Now that I have just step up the laptop, I am now faced with duplicated accounts at the log in screen.

    Could someone advise me as to how this happens and how do i manage this?

    I went to the account manager screen but it shows only 2 accounts;

    1. Admin
    2. UserABC

    but on the login screen, it shows 4 buttons;

    2x Admin
    2X UserABC



    Is there anyway to have it back to 2 Buttons;

    i.e.

    1X Admin
    1X UserABC

    Help anyone?

    We are having so many problems with vista in our office network, that I am seriously considering switching back to XP.

    Vista

    Sorry, I cannot help ! I am also a Vista victim !
    Even if I do not agree with you, I will always fight for you to have your say.

    Hmm, could it be that both account can run in admin mode and normal account mode? I heard something abt vista running u in normal user mode most of the time for "security reasons" and causes u not being able to stop the restart to ur computer for auto update to complete. Sorry can't help u much on this. Formatted my laptop the 3rd day after i got so pissed with vista.
