Mine is fully update and shows a rating of 5.3
Yes it legal and original Version, Vista Ultimate.No problems absolutely.
Hmm ,that stupid rating is because of the harddrive.
I need to install SCSI disk or try any of the Raid controller.

Read about WEI... here

And.. read on... here... to improve it :D

WEI has been a point of contention for many Windows Vista users because the WEI scores tend to be extremely low. Unfortunately, some software requires your WEI score to be above a certain threshold for all the features to work. Fortunately, it is easy to artificially raise your WEI score by modifying the configuration file.

  1. [*]The first step is to check your current score. In order to check your WEI score, go to to Start >> Computer >> System Properties >> Performance


    [*]Click Rate this computer. It will take a few minutes while Windows evaluates your computer.


    [*]Your baseline WEI score will now be set.


    [*]In order to raise this score, navigate to the following directory: C:\Windows\Performance\WinSAT\DataStore



    Note: You will need to have your UAC temporarily disabled to proceed with the rest of these steps, if you have not done that please read "Disable UAC in Windows Vista".
    [*]You will notice one or more XML files. Every time the WEI test is run, it will create a new XML file. Open the most recent file in Wordpad (Start >> All Programs >> Accessories >> Wordpad). Lines 14 - 21 have a simple score on each line with XML tags. You can manually change these scores to whatever value you want.


    [*]Re-save the file with the same name and close Wordpad. If Windows prevents your from saving the file, ensure that you have disabled UAC. When you check your WEI score again, you will now notice a major improvement. Start >> Computer >> System Properties >> Performance

Your new and improved Windows Experience Index will be permanently saved until you rerun the performance test. Any features of software relying on your Windows Experience Score will now be enabled. Don't worry if you accidentally mess up the file. You can delete the file and rerun the performance test and Windows Vista will recreate the file automatically.
