Vista revitalised

I found a post on Techmeme that mentioned that there was an update out for Vista to deal with some performance and reliability issues. I downloaded it, installed it and my computer feels visably quicker. I don’t know if there’s a physiological element here; whether knowing that I’ve installed a performance update makes my computer feel quicker but here’s a list of issues that this fixes:

You experience a long delay when you try to exit the Photos screen saver.
A memory leak occurs when you use the Windows Energy screen saver.
If User Account Control is disabled on the computer, you cannot install a network printer successfully. This problem occurs if the network printer is hosted by a Windows XP-based or a Windows Server 2003-based computer.
When you write data to an AVI file by using the AVIStreamWrite function, the file header of the AVI file is corrupted.
When you copy or move a large file, the “estimated time remaining” takes a long time to be calculated and displayed.
After you resume the computer from hibernation, it takes a long time to display the logon screen.
When you synchronize an offline file to a server, the offline file is corrupted.
If you edit an image file that uses the RAW image format, data loss occurs in the image file. This problem occurs if the RAW image is from any of the following digital SLR camera models:

Canon EOS 1D
Canon EOS 1DS
After you resume the computer from hibernation, the computer loses its default gateway address.
Poor memory management performance occurs.

Looks pretty stable, you might want to try it out. There’s speculation around whether this is the pre-SP1 update.
