    Microsoft Windows Vista’s default 125Hz USB sample rate is not enough for today’s gamers and end-users. There are many USB sample rate patches out there, but none of them are supporting Windows Vista SP1 - due to the new restricted driver signature enforcement feature. However, it is now possible to use these patches thanks to the latest version of our own Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider (DSEO), but I am not taking any responsibilities for any damages! Use it at your own risk.

    1. Download Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider (attached below).
    2. Download HIDUSBF (attached below).
    3. Run Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider and choose Enable Test Mode.
    4. Extract HIDUSBF to some folder, right click on HIDUSBF.inf and choose Install.
    5. Run Setup.exe from HIDUSBF’s folder, check the Filter on Device box and select your desired sample rate.
    6. Run Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider again, choose Sign a System file and insert full path to the installed HIDUSBF.sys file (Usually C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\HIDUSBF.sys).
    7. Restart your computer and enjoy.
    8. Verify by using Mouse Rate or DirectInput Mouse Rate (attached below)

    That should do the trick. Remember! Use it at your own risk! Do not blame me if your motherboard explodes, Vista or USB fails. But... I have already tested it myself with a lot of success, so you don't have any reason to worry. If you would like to uninstall it, just right click on HIDUSBFU.inf, choose Install and disable test mode from Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider.

    Follow the link for the files and don't forget to leave thanks.

    USB Mouse Rate is like the fps but this is the fps of the mouse. Higher mouse/ poll rates are used so the mouse pointer doesn't aciddently skip pixels.

    @FastMix: It worked but when i restart it didn't post, then i restarted again, it worked!! But my mouse only went from 400 Hz to 590 not 1000. :(

    If this is anything like the XP USB Sample rate fix(enhancement) then I'll be all over it but right now, thanks to Asus, I do not have my system running. Maybe sometime in 2010 I'll get my board back and I'll let you know.

    How can I check my mouses current Hz??

    EDIT: NVM.. Apparently I am averaging between 90 and 120hz.. Guess thats bad. Giving this a try.

    Well I set it to 1000hz and I checked it and it runs from 200hz to 1000hz its not steady (don't know if its supposed to be).

    Should I be more accurate in FPS games now lol?

    matter of OPINION. just like idiots who think 1600dpi (or laser gimmicks) actually does anything for them.

    enable mouse smoothing in games and that takes care of that.
