    It reads nice but in the release notes it said that it only works on 32-bit machines! You know when I got this computer of mine – I thought that 64 bits was an improvement not a limitation!

    Cooolll I like this, rather than holding down Ctrl+Alt+Del and then having to select Task Manager in Vista now I can just right click on it and close the software.
