I plan to wait until SP1 is available as an update and even then I'll wait a
while to see if others are having problem with it before I install it.
When I asked the question I was thinking perhaps the OP was having a problem
due to an unauthorized version of it.
Bit of irony in these two statements, don't you think?
"Microsoft accidently released the update via Windows Update for X64

"The hack is from Microsoft so it is safe to use."
