Robert McLaws passes along the news that the two hotfix packages Microsoft has been testing for the past few weeks are now available for download. I’m linking to the Knowledge Base articles on the theory that you should read the instructions before you start downloading or installing either one.
Windows Vista Performance Update:
Windows Vista Reliability Update:
For what it’s worth, I’ve tested the beta versions of these hotfixes and experienced no problems. Your mileage may vary. I’ll install on a couple of other machines and see what happens.
And no, this is not SP1.

Got ’em in right now, no problems so far.
FYI Beta=Final. MD5 comparison (32-bit version) is identical.
Odd, validation passes, but neither of the 64-bit files will install, and not even after reboot.
…..more reading required.
Zaine, I’ve just installed the 64-bit files here without issue.
Using copy and paste out of explorer, 592 meg of files (around 3800 of them) took four minutes doing it the Windows Explorer copy and paste way, and around two minutes for the same job using RoboCopy.
By the way, both patches installed on my 32bit Home Basic ThinkPad T43p without any problems.
Ah! Re-downloaded the files and the new ones worked. Thanks again for the links, Ed.
i want the leaked sp1 updates 😦
i wanted to beta test sp1 updates, but had no way of doing so.
so far sp1 is looking good
based on these two updates
Ed, if you have any MS contacts, could you ask them to clarify what “Poor memory management performance occurs” means in Q938979? They might as well have said “And other fixes” for all the help that is.
how do I find the temporary internet files?
