    So this tweak seems to work great in Windows XP and Windows Vista so I decided to test it with Windows 7 - and it works.

    Basically taken my ping down from 100-250 to around 30, I'll be testing it a little more tonight (a lower ping means more dps right?)

    Here is the information:

    Anyone else ever used this tweak? Have you noticed any issues?
