Right there with you on this one Had an issue loading CCNTR on a windows Ult. upgrade on the Vista Ult. Sys.
First I noticed that my fans were seriously non apparent, So I figured there was an issue with reg conflicts. So I hard shutdown and booted CMD and ran CHKDSK repair, completed no errors and restarted. I then went to the Intel update center and updated my chipset driver. Now My CPU is running @ 40+% load from Fusion, and my fans are non stop. . . I will keep tinkering but I remember on my last m17x that AlienTech could n't for the life of them solve this half baked GUI. Best of luck. Jim
