I didn't look in the ForceWare Vista thread because it has nothing to do with NVIDIA. However, my games do seem to be a whole lot smoother. STALKER isn't as laggy and Tomb Raider Legend seems to be a lot smoother as well. And file copying...is now working as it should have!

Well I did something that i do not do much and that is I download these "Leaked" hotfixes. I have not got to test them yet so i can not say much,However I did use IE and it seemed about as fast as firefox if not little bit faster then firefox. I have to play around with it later when i have more time.

Transfered 81MB of files and downloaded latest version of Nero in no time (Nero has to be transferred from temp folder to official folder)

So encredible what just a couple of installed updates can do with the performance of a machine and it's just .... code
