This is more than likely old news but I couldn't find it here on the forums but for you guys running a less than legit Vista should be warned. I got this directly from Microsoft. Read below. SP1 also includes updates that deal with two exploits we have seen, which can affect system stability for our customers. • The OEM Bios exploit, which involves modifying system files and the BIOS of the motherboard to mimic a type of product activation performed on copies of Windows that are pre-installed by OEMs in the factory. • The Grace Timer exploit, which attempts to reset the “grace time” limit between installation and activation to something like the year 2099 in some cases.
