Solve a problem with Windows 7 beta
An issue with the Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) client in Windows 7 beta is causing Explorer and some MSI-based installers to stop working properly.
To solve this problem, follow these steps:
Click the Start button , click All Programs, and then click Accessories.
Right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. In the User Account Control window, verify that Program name is Windows Command Processor, and then click Yes.
In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, type or paste the following text at the prompt:
reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SQMClient\Windows\DisabledSessions /va /f
Press Enter to install the solution.
If The operation completed successfully displays, close the Administrator: Command Prompt window to complete this procedure. If "ERROR: Access is denied" displays, repeat this procedure from the top, making sure you clicked Run as administrator in step two.
"cannot open file benchtst.$$$"
You're probably running Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, or Windows 7. You probably have UAC running normally as well (good for you!). To get around it, right click on the application binary (or your shortcut to it) and select "Run as Administrator." This will give you the permissions you need to create the initial file for the benchmark to run.

I did get some toys recently, including an interesting watch and a couple Logitech MX Revolution mice from Best Buy on sale. I got a couple Mosquito 4x4 micro-copters from Radio Shack, and I might throw up some interesting stuff on those too. Or not.
