    Does anyone know the full proof way to patch the tcpip.sys 4226 error in Vista. I really want to fix this but I've tried it in the past and screwed it up somehow and had to do a system repair to get my computer to reboot.

    I only know how to repair the stack in XP. I've never used Vista so not sure if it works the same way so I'm hesitant to advise you. Like Indy, I switched to OSX when I compared it to XP. It's light years ahead of OS 9.x and, imho, XP and Vista. I just got fed-up with dealing all the bullshit every few months when something major got borked due to spyware or some stupid combination of perfect things happening in just the right way.

    Watch out... as Macs get more popular, more and more malicious folks are writing viral programs for them. I've known several people who have already seen infections. Also, it's worth noting that a lack of visible problems does not mean you don't have a virus. Many take a while to become apparent.

    That's true, but OSX handles these very differently. They're easy to get rid of, difficult to get if you maintain control over what gets installed, and if you get them and they don't fuck-up your machine nearly as badly.

    Oops I wrote full proof instead of fool proof, excuse me.:redface:

    Thanks incocknito for a response that actually pertains to my Thread. However those patches are pre Vista.

    Indeed, the levels of complacency among MAC advocates is amusing.

    MACs (and 'nix boxes) are not immune, they're simply too 'niche' to make worthwhile targets (yet!) - thus I suppose they risk being a victim of their own success, only not really. The architecture of MACs helps, that's undeniable and thus provides some disincentive - but again, it's primarily because the user footprint is so small that makes that so. Were the numbers reversed I'd wager so would the 'arguments'.

    Professionally I like and use them all (Windows, MAC and 'nix - roughly 50%:30%:15% - the missing 5% being oddities like Solaris or mainframe based OSs when the rare need arises) and they each have their strengths, and weaknesses. In a mainstream business environment, at the desktop level at least - justly or not, MACs and Linux do not compete.

    Personally, I prefer the overall look of MACs (esp the hardware) but for personal use I prefer the everyday usability of Windows. Many would say the Windows GUI is heading toward the MAC, and I'd have to agree, at least in part - but much better though they are these days - there remain (for me) too many 'unintuitive' and 'irritating' things about MAC OSs. For me that is!

    It's simply a personal preference, and lots of folk say the reverse, or swear by Linux, as is their prerogative. Indeed, many feel strongly about their preference and voice their opinions with an almost evangelical zeal (heaven knows why - it's only an OS!!!). that's fine.

    But when the name calling starts [not so far in this thread] - well, it's a bit childish, isn't it. :rolleyes:

    That said, to the OP, I'd have to agree ... ditch Vista!!!:tongue::biggrin1:

    Did the patch not work? I know it isn't specifically designed for Vista but I thought it might work anyway.

    Most websites about the issue say the patches are file specific meaning that you need to know the version of the tcpip.sys file and use the patch meant for it. The problems is that if you just swap out the .sys file for a patched one you need to interrupt the boot process to by pass ms file signature which would cause a BSOD or failed boot if you didn't.

    By the way(for the bashers) its not a Vista issue even though Vista runs just fine for me. The same tcip issue exists in XP and is reset to original parameters everytime you do the cumulative security update in windows update or any spX update such as sp2 sp3.
