actually if your careful its not so bad...and when i had this problem speed fan was showing one core a little hotter than the others and one at -128 degrees...although the minus temp may be internal to speed fan....(only showing 3 cores) dunno haven't looked at speed fan much...best bet is if you haven't done this before get some help from someone who has...its much easier to do if you have seen it done before

So far so good...been 24 hours without a single hitch. Either the .bat or the hotfix must have done it. Well I'm not about to count my chickens yet since Murphy's Law could still kick in, but anyway thanks to everyone for helping.
