08-07-07, 04:42 PM
leaked and official is excactly the same, same digital signatures

08-07-07, 05:18 PM
Yes, it patches that exploit.

Exploit? I can't tell you how many issues having driver signing disabled fixes...driver signing is as bad as UAC.

Core temp, hamachi, etc, etc, etc ad nausem

I was having major lockups when playing GRAW 2 getting the the 'Nvlddmkm Stopped responding' after playing for only 30 - 60 seconds but after the patches I managed to play for 5 minutes without one lockup. So far so good.

Thank you.

Yes, it patches that exploit.


MS can't even write decent drivers for the XBOX360 controller for Windows. I've had to force XBCD drivers on x64 to get a half ass functioning controller. Now I can't even do that because of these patches to fix a plethora of other MS issues.

F8 at boot still works

but i do agree, having it disable pernamently was just so much better.

I like peerguardian and rivatuner.

After installing these hotfixes, I tried one more time 163.11, which were extremely unstable for me before, comparing to 158.45. They seem good so far..

Microsoft Releases Service Packs for Vista, XP to Testers

"According to AeroXperience, the latest build of SP1 sent to testers was labeled 6001.16549. In addition, WinBeta claims to have screenshots of SP1 which was distributed via an ISO -- 3.07GB for the 32-bit version and 4.3GB for the 64-bit version.

In addition to the SP1 information, AeroXperience also reports that Windows XP SP3 was released to testers (Build 5.1.2600.3180). The download weighs in at 350MB and supposedly fixes over 900 issues with the operating system."

I'll just wait then. I have the older versions of these installed. They seem to be going through many revisions lately.

One thing I've noticed since installing these hotifxes is it takes a very long time now when I load any videos now, Media Player opens and just kinda sits there for like 10 secs before it starts playing. Kinda sux.

Also, how do I permanently disable driver signing enforcement in Vista64?

with these hotfixes you don't

08-07-07, 11:01 PM
with these hotfixes you don't

Waddya mean? You mean after applying these you can't? Or you don't have to? Cause if I don't I can't get on the internets.

08-07-07, 11:41 PM
i mean you can't disable it pernamently

08-08-07, 01:02 AM
There is no known way to permanently disable driver signing with Vista x64 once the patch is applied.

I do want to use Rivatuner and Peerguardian but didn't want to use F8 every time. What I did was use this command:

bcdedit /set advancedoptions Yes

which brings up the Vista load menu automatically with every boot, without having to remember to hit F8. You still have to manually select the driver signature override unfortunately.

over 900 problems fixed....daym..

08-08-07, 02:16 PM
That's why as long as I'm running only 2GB, I'm still sticking with 32-Bit Vista. I tried 64-bit when I first got Vista (ordered the 64-bit disk from MS), and the driver signing requirement was driving me nuts.
