So will this go out of date and have to be removed or will the real SP2 simply over write it once it comes out?

As before. Uninstall and reinstall full SP2.

I just installed this. Mem usage is down. Just looking at my sir Real display on G15 it's around 25% less. As for speed. My Vista install is only a few months old, so it was already pretty fast. CPU seems to be doing more though. As is HDD. :: Reindexing perhaps?

Does the disc access seem faster? That's the only thing on our laptop that blows ass with Vista. I know it's a slower 5400 rpm drive but come on the access is kinda poopy when starting up a game or installing.

I'm going to wait a little. I can't wait for final release. I'm sure this probably will speed up a lot for laptop. I really can't wait for Windows 7.
