Are you part of the beta program?

I have not had the system crash on me yet but I am not playing crysis or anything. I am using Nvidia 178.24 drivers without any issues at all.

The only downside is IE8 Beta 2 does not work with all sites so just stick to firefox.

Forgot to add im using 64 bit with 64-bit media player. I heard some problems with 32-bit media player so i just skipped it.
I tried those hacks but it didn't work.

Networking is WAY better with W7. Alot quicker than in Vista. When you bootup network is active almost immediately, unlike vista where it would take a little while before you could surf. It changes state quickly, similar to xp. Everything is just snappier.
