I have tried 2x to download and use the Calibre program, the program locks up my computer and I have to run a restore and dump the program. I am running windows vista, Is vista not compatible with Calibre?

There should be no problems using Calibre on Vista.

The fact that it causes a lock-up suggests that there is something fundamentally wrong on your system. Even if it was going to fail, Calibre should not cause a lock-up.

I would be tempted to:
- Run a memory check using something like memtest86+
- Run a full disk check including a sector level scan

Does it complete the install then lock up when you run the program?
