Why on earth doesn't NVidia FIX nTune?

Hi,

As far as I can tell, it is a widely known (and much wept over) fact that NVidia's highly touted (by them) overclocking utility - nTune - simply does not work with Windows Vista.  Yes, it will overclock your GPU, but you cannot save a profile, thus you have to overclock again each session.

Why doesn't NVidia fix this?  They have to know the software they brag about on their support site simply does not work - yet they continue to promote it.

Maybe the line on their website should be, "Download nTune!  It looks real pretty! (oh, and BTW, it doesn't work - sorry...)"

Well, I have Version 5.05.47 already.  I don;t even know why NVidia is still offering an older version???

Regardless.  The problem is that nTune won't save Profiles.  Just won't.  They have to know this and haven't fixed it in release after release.

Sometimes I feel like calling them and saying "Do you guys ever read the message boards?  Are you aware your software is broken and has been for a year?"

I've tried ATI Tool, but it doesn't have a signed driver and won't work under Vista 64.  I have used the F8 to turn off the requirement for signed drivers, yet when i try to un ATI Tool, it STILL requests a signed driver! (which is weird, seeing as how I turned that OFF - oh well).

I've looked at Rivatuner, but honestly can't make heads nor tails of how the damn thing works.  Also, that doesnt have a signed driver either.

Isn't there an overclocking utility out there that workd with Vista 64 and has a signed driver?
