    Think I'll reinstall and try that RedPill version. I've fubar'd my system any way, trying different AVs. Of all that I've tried, I've only found that PCTools works satisfactorily (I've only tried free AVs, as I don't see the point in spending money where there's no need, meaning that I haven't tested the likes of Norton, McAfee, Kaspersky etc).

    General info I've read about these Pills.

    You should un-install the previous Red Pill before installing a new one.

    Rumors are, you should run sfc /scannow right after installation, before anything is loaded.

    The first install was hanging, so re-installed and ran sfc, then the Red Pill 1.3.9.1, then UTR 7989.
    Seems to be running better.

    Well ,yesterday I've made Windows clean install (again) ,and again ,after enabling newest RedPill ,PC freezes on shutdown or reboot!
    Although everything else is working better then with previous versions.

    I'm still getting short hangs, mostly in explorer. Better than before, guess this is due to the Red Pill, without it, it's fast.

    Can't expect too much from a pre beta build. At least we can see the new features and some of the new UI.

    Will keep it, until the next build arrives.

    I just finished installing Windows 8 as a dual-boot on my laptop. It works great, except for one thing. Installing the drivers for my GPU (NVIDIA Quadro 2000M), desktop composition was disabled and I was no longer able to use Windows Aero. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Update: It turns out that any driver installation does this on my computer.

    Update 2: Two reboots seem to fix the problem. Windows 8 runs great now. I am guessing this means that it would run great on the ThinkPad T420, T520, and W520.

    I have removed it and have gone back to 7955 which was a stable build.
    Firefox,avast,Mse don't work properly, the system won't shutdown and it crashed my complete system.
    I will wait for a more stable build.

    System by itself IS STABLE and fast ,but as I've wrote before ,pill is the problem and it makes it unstable!
    And even with RedPill ,except shutdown-restart block ,everything else works fine by me!

    Firefox crashes also on 7955 on certain sites ,and MSE works perfectly fine ,just put compatibility to Windows 7!

    And 7955 will stop working in two weeks!

    I've had RedPill installed and enabled, but have decided to disable it and revert back as it was causing IE to become sluggish. I haven't had chance to reinstall yet, but I might get chance over the weekend (or whenever).

    Instead, this afternoon I have been trying out various Email clients to see which ones work on this build and the only one that seems to be satisfactory is Sylpheed (and before you ask, no, I've not heard of it before). Thunderbird also works, but I found it difficult to configure and couldn't get it to send any test Emails.

    You can download it here: Sylpheed - lightweight and user-friendly e-mail client

Fraps 3.1.2 on Build 7989
I have noticed that when recoding with fraps on build 7989 does not exhibit problems with minimizing and resorting a game that is being recorded. I am recoding SAMP and minimizing while recoding would crash the game. Win 8 Beta this problem does not exist, allowing you to keep recording constantly....

Running build 7989 Where are the new features?
When I first saw Windows 7 I thought, Oh boy.. it's Linux. I'm looking at Windows 8 and so far I'm thinking It's just like Windows 7. I expected something a little less windows 7ish. I wanted any new features exclusive to Windows 8 to jump out and grab me. I know this is a really early build but...
