1)Are you using the older version of 9.0? there seems to be similar issue of incompatibility/crashes with vista.
2)Have you tried reinstalling? There might be corrupted/missing files in the installer causing it unable to setup properly.
3)Is your Vista up to date?

1.) This is the version of my YM, ymsgr900_2124_us.

2.) When I try to uninstall it, it just hang and nothing happens. Even if I wait.

3.) Yes, my Vista is up to date.

And I have a new problem, I can't connect to the Internet, I don't know if it's because of this. But I think I have a virus, cause when I tried to open system restore, it is turned off, but I don't remember that I turn off it.

Right now, I'm using XP so I can connect to the internet.
