    This hotfix is reported to bump the score by quite much. I just saw a forum member (not out forum) to report that his score changed from 3424 to 6570 just by installing the hotfix?

    The question really should be, how many people secretly are just torrenting this software anyways.

    I predict a 400% increase in torrents of cracked Vista and 80% of Vantage users operating on pirated version of the benchmark.

    idk, i doubt it. you have to access the internet, so MIGHT be doing a key check everytime you check your results.
