NOTE: Official patches are exactly the same as leaked patches, same CRC, same digital signatures. No reason to reinstall the if you previously installed the patches.

I have some good news, and some bad news.

First the good news, two most important updates to vista have been unofficially released (soon to go official)

938979 Vista Performance and Reliability Pack

This update resolves a number of individual issues which may be affecting some computers running Windows Vista. These issues have been reported by customers using the Error Reporting service, product support, or other means. Installing this update will improve the performance and responsiveness for some scenarios and improves reliability of Windows Vista in a variety of scenarios. Some examples of the improvements contained in this update are:

Man these, I hope they do good:

• Increased reliability and performance of Vista when entering sleep and resuming from sleep.

• Improves the performance in calculating the ‘estimated time remaining’ when copying/moving large files.

• Improves the performance when copying or moving entire directories containing large amounts of data or files.

• Increased compatibility with many video drivers.

:)

btw, Source ?

BTW, i installed these, and uninstall them because there is no pernament way to disable driver siging requirement in 64bit. Which is required for RivaTuner, ATITool and Peerguardian

Well its actually official and these files were taken from a QFE drop on the Windows 2008 beta allowing testers to check out early patcher so it is no scam.

So what is this about driver signing in vista 64?

If we install both these updates, we can't use peerguardian?

wow this is the real deal.

I haven't had a problem with vista on my laptop since I've got it until a few weeks ago where network traffic (up/down) would be extremely slow and sometimes lag out.

I tried everything from turning off firewalls and the relavant hotfixes, but alas no difference.

But after this patch, my network transfer speeds have been faster then what they were originally!

+1 These patchs.

vista 64bit requires that all drivers have digital signature (different than WHQL)

before 938979 hotfix there were ways to disable this requirement pernamently.

few free programs that require a driver to function and don't have digital signatures will not function.

rivatuner, atitool, peerguardian rc-1, just to name a few.

digital signatures for drivers can be expensive, and when you make free programs, you don't make any money, so who is going to pay for them to go out and get their drivers signed?

Can't you disable it at startup using F8?
