A quick summary of what has changed from v1: 1) Addition of the OpenCL test. (it uses all available GPUs including CPU embedded ones if they're available and support OpenCL) 2) Replacement of the Multitasking test with a much heavier version. 3) New scoring system. 4) Redesigned Stress Test from scratch. Now it's like it was supposed to be. Don't curse at me if you start failing this one 😛 5) Lots of interface changes. Stress Test mode is now separated from Benchmark mode, so it's more intuitive. 6) Online Leaderboard function for everyone that has ASUS boards. Official leaderboard is not online yet but you can submit scores from the beta so it will help the testing of the function. 7) High quality screenshot function. 😎 Full system stats displayed in user interface after successful runs.
Oh well, enough talking, I'll let you explore the beta!
One of my hopes for RB is that some of these big reviewers of off-the-shelf computers that put out those "Top 10 PC's for every budget" type of reviews out will start including RB scores so as to create a bigger comparison picture for the custom builders. I suspect a system score of ~80,000 would compare favorably to most any high end off-the-shelf machine.

You can try rebuilding the performance monitor registry strings. Open a command prompt and type lodctr /R and hit enter. See if that does anything for you. Gotta say though, even if it does fix it, I don't know if I could trust that Windows install anymore. If that was corrupted, what else might be?
