    On a serious note, if you insist on using lolvista, this may help.

    Don't install over, use a seperate HD. My network card drivers wouldn't even install.

    the reason i installed over it was cause my xp copy was on the last day of either activation or expiring again on [email protected]

    couldnt get it to crack so i got vista for the time being...big mistake and im not gonna buy xp since vista is coming out soon anyhow

    thanks for the link...reading atm hope it helps

    ninja edit:
    it says copy an updated playonline folder but...that i dont have ;; ;; ;;
    the thing is playonline wouldnt even start
    any pointers will be greatly appreciated

    btw, if its the old CD set you do need the new pol. I just run 2 pc's and copy the pol.exe right over the top of the vista one after the updates, and tada no problems.

    I was honestly looking to grab a copy and load it, but if it's this buggy I'll stick to XP until 2009 THEN buy it.

    I've usually Beta Tested most of the OS's that come out of MS, and while they enjoy crashing with all the crap I throw at them. They usually run the software that I do load.

    And lol at the problem details.

    Did the fix that Mikeal suggested work?
