    something tells me that this contains a trojan or whatever so i'm not really tempted to try

    i do not know if these have a trojan... BUT the registry hack is true... it adds two lines to the registry.

    these are the two lines
    "
    @echo off
    reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSp1 /v Beta1 /t REG_SZ /d a2c3c14a-9586-4d37-9aaa-79fbd64069d2 /f
    reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\VistaSP1 /v Beta1 /t REG_SZ /d a2c3c14a-9586-4d37-9aaa-79fbd64069d2 /f

    echo Vista SP1 registry key has been set. Please check for updates in Windows Update.
    "

    happy beta testing

    From what I have heard, this SP1 is sort of pre-beta and a regular bug-fest. Nah, I'll wait till they get the kinks worked out.

    it is not bug fest nor is it SUPER FAST as other people might say...

    i've had it for a full week... had no issues... actually fixed some of them... i thought i do my part and report the problems i had to microsoft via the "Problems and Solutions" then i uninstalled it... and i'm waiting for the final build...

    Should this hack be done on a fresh install of vista?

    if tryit sp1 for long time it did't make any faster or more responsive did still come with few bugs but not many.
    atm run without so i can tell 100% sure.
    altough this sp1 beta if tryit was for 64 bit.
    and an old build

    Did you check if the service pack improved file copying speeds in Vista?

    Doesn't this have a 30 day timer on it? Because it's not final?

    which is strange since of all 5 packages in sp1 prerelease

    -windows6.0-kb936330-X64.cab
    -windows6.0-kb937954-X64.cab
    windows6.0-kb937287-X64.cab
    windows6.0-kb935509-X64.cab
    windows6.0-kb938371-X64.cab

    only the first two cabs in this list can be uninstalled!

    If anyone has a trick to uninstall the others I'd like to hear.
