i've been running fs2004 on vista for about 3 months now and so far havn't had any issues except i can only play the game in full screen without the toolbar at top, if i try to view it the game continues but the screen freezes, it also freezes if i change the screen size...any help would be much appreicated!

i am running the resolution at 1680x1050 and thats what windows is running at too since i have a 20" wide screen monitor.

What are your system specs, it takes a lot to run Vista.
Check and see that you have the latest video drivers not the old beta ones.

don't get me wrong the game plays just fine with no lag or anything but i can only play in full screen mode with no task bar at top, if i try to change it, the game freezes completelt untill i change it back, i get tired of hitting alt whenever i need anything off the taskbar at top.

here are my pc specs:
300 gb hd
Intel duo core 6400 @ 2.13 ghz
2046 mb ram
Nvidia Gforce 7300 LE

Your machine is more than adequate.
Vista and FS9, difficult to say what the problem is.
Try new video drivers if they have any.
Clean out the old ones first.
