New Vista Reliability & Stability Update Coming

Recommended Posts

German site winfuture.de reports that new updates are available on Microsoft's Connect website that are similar to the previous performance and reliability updates published earlier.


Winfuture article translated by Google


The first and most interesting is KB941649: It is a Vista reliability update and is said to improve: battery runtime on mobile devices, reaction time at and after boot, 3rd party anti-virus compatibility improvements, Internet Explorer stability, and stability of WLAN connections(!) and other things.


The second is for Windows Media Player: KB941651


The third for Media Center: KB941229


If we could get these that would be very cool. No knowledge base articles are available at the moment. :ph34r:
