W7 X-64 IE8 Google Chrome plugin -- don't do it yet

Hi all

You might have seen various references to performance improvements in browsing if you add the google chrome plugin to IE8.
My experience with W7 X-64 RTM (legal downloaded from Technet and Clean install) is that this plug in causes random " IE8 has stopped working" messages as well as random "This copy of Windows might not be genuine" messages.

Unistalling and disabling the plugin doesn't always fix the problem either -- I had to restore a previous backup -- I always take a backup before messing around with this type of software anyway.

YMMV but this plugin doesn't appear to do "what it says on the tin".
