Vista Stinks - Issue 1

I have decided to chronicle all the issues I'm having with Windows newest mistake, Vista. For the record I have the Home 32-bit edition.

You will notice that the subject reads "Issue 1". I am expecting there to be many more, quite regular issues.

Today I was clicking in the Start Menu, about to open GIMP, when the Start menu suddenly closed and the busy animation on my cursor went off for a half second. I opened the menu again, thinking nothing of it, only to find the GIMP shortcut was no longer there. Along with a dozen other shortcuts. I searched and searched and estimate that 10 to 12 shortcuts were arbitrarily deleted. How convenient.
