So what is this about driver signing in vista 64?
If we install both these updates, we can't use peerguardian?

• Resolves an issue where creating AVI files on Vista may get corrupted.

Good stuff.
Although it was something that shouldn't have been broken in the first place:whistle:e:

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?

Its not that bad then. Considering many people leave their PC's on 24/7, it won't be much of a hassle until a workaround is found.
