I'm happy to report that my DL speeds have gone back up to around 8 Mbps which works for me.

Not sure if there would be much use in running it on a vista/win7 machine, but certainly a painless way to maximize connection speeds under XP.
Apparently they actually updated it to be Vista/7 compatible just recently. Although I agree they fixed things a lot from XP, might help a little.
