Hi guys, just been sent this article about a supposed unique unfixable glitch in windows 7:
IGN: Windows 7's Unfixable Glitch

was wondering if anyone else has heard about it and knows anything more?
also, if some one with permissions would like to start a new thread it would be helpful!

cheers! BEAN

It's nothing to worry about, they'd have to go and physically install Vbootkit on your system, it can't be done remotely and it's nothing new. Just scare tactics really.

Old news. See 0wning Vista from the boot from back in 2007. Same guys, same rootkit. If it was that big of a problem for Vista two years ago, we would have heard more about it.

Some have even accused them of code-stealing.

Edit: Yes it does expire June 2010. Hourly shutdowns will start a month or two earlier.

Vista was only roadmapped internally as an 18 month operating system anyway. Looks like Microsoft are softening now Mr Gates has gone.

That's awesome. Even though it may be available for a year, I'm stilling getting the RTM version when it becomes available.

He's a business man so now lets see his ploy to make money.

Give millions of people the latest and greatest OS Microsoft have done and let them have it free for a whole year. Everyone installs and runs applications for Windows7.

Now...

After a year the all forget when it will start to shutdown etc so when it happens people are more likely to just pay to get it fully activated than apposed to rebuilding there machine with what?
