    Ok, i've been without the 4in1 since I installed windows XP
    and everything runs fine and smooth i got to say, but i've read so much (good and bad) about the 4in1's that i decided to check them out.

    I installed VIa 4in1 4.40P3 which is the newest one and my system started to act up a LOT (sound cracks, slowdowns, etc)

    so my question is, what 4in1's are the best ? which ones DO make your system better?

    My specs:
    AMD 1.2 ghz
    Biostar M7vkb
    256 RAM
    Windows XP pro
    SB Audigy Plantinium EX

    Any comments are welcome,

    Thanks

    P.S. sorry for bad English

    Yep, if you are not having problems then dont install them.

    I have the VIA 4in1 v 4.38 and everything is alright.
     
  3. Just wondering how you can tell which version you have installed?

    if you go to VIA Arena they have a list of the files in the pack and their versions you can then do a search for the files on your PC and find out that way. Mainly people generallt remember or they only have one installation file and that has the version number either in its properties or in the file name.
