It is possible to hack this score in just a few minutes. Here are the snapshots of my own system. Actually my system’s base score is 3.7. But I have brought it up to 9.5 with this small hack. This can be done for your computer too!
Here is a step-by-step instruction to hack the base score of Windows Vista:
Type the following command in the “Run” dialog box:
You should see a .xml file with Assessment (Formal).WinSAT as filename.

On line 12, you should see something like the following:
You can enter any number in the place where I have written 9.5. But the number should be less than 10.
