in earlier builds you could simply right-click desktop-view and deselect show desktop icons, but it doesent work anymore I am afraid. Also there's been some reg edit tweaks around, but they also dont work anymore.

there must be a way to remove it i have seen some people speaking about this in other forums
Oh dear here we go again, "EVALUATION" states what is means... 5600 runs out on the 06/01/2007 @ 00:59. Therefore rendering the end-user of the product to stop working...?

RC1 RC2* RC3* RTM GOLD...?

* Possibility Vista could move into Phase RC2 and RC3 then RTM... but there will still be a build at the bottom because it is a evaluation copy... Sorry to sound a little rude but, the fact of the matter is Vista is in BETA and not official until it is released. If you like it so much then pre-order a copy of Vista like I have done. Yep sad I know but, what the heck. :smoker:

The RC1 in the bottom right-hand corner does not bother me at all. :lick:

I don't really see how it gets annoying? :-/

Anyone know when CPP will reopen for RC1?

Installed this on Monday. Working well. It's the first time the drivers on NVIDIA's site actually work properly too.
Good stuff. :)

Cool. Is there any way to change the server that it is downloading from?

Beta 2 keys do in fact work. Kid tested and mother approved.

So far, from what I have learned, some improvement has been made with graphics rendering in games.

w00t! WoW may work. ;-)

Anyone know where the firefox settings are stored? Seems that the redirected folder isn't correct. I just want to be able to take my bookmarks.html from WinXP install to Vista so that I can try to use this full-time.

Is anyone else having an issue with F@H with Vista RC1? It says that I need to be logged in as an Administrator in order to install the client...but I am logged in as an Administrator.

I figured it out. I disabled UAC and it started working. Interesting though, I didnt have to do that in Pre-RC1

UAC is a big pain in the butt and a huge annoyance. Even disabling it is annoying (security warning in the notification area).

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
