im just wondering can you go back to xp from vista

mine is running slow so i need new ram but in the meantime can i go back?

RAM isn't too expensive now-a-days, so it'll be worth upgrading.

In the meantime, If you have a pendrive, stick that into your USB port and use it as a 'ReadyBoost' memory for Vista to cache to.

2GB is recommended in this case ... I use 4GB drive and Vista flies.

XP, I believe, cannot be rolled back to, unlike one could do with XP to, say, Win98.

There was another thread asking this but I can't find it just now. As far as I know the answer is no. You can format the hard drive and do a clean install of XP but you cannot just go back to XP without doing this. Once Vista installs you've had it.
