3 new performance and reliability updates for Windows Vista


Recommended Posts

The update configuration took forever so I forcefully rebooted and then the loading bar was so slow at starting up and nothing seemed to work. I had to insert my disc to do system restore and now it's fixed. I guess I have to wait till Windows Update finishes configuring completely...

Lesson learned.

You're having the problem me (and alot of other people in this thread are having). :( I guess we will just have to hold back on the update until the issue is resolved. :)

Updated x64 Vista without any problems. Haven't noticed any improvements, then again there's none to be had, Vista already performs very well. Still, always nice to keep up to date :)

The first update causes my system to stall on boot (even safe mode).

At first I applied all four but was able to system restore, then started installing one by one and it stalled with just the first.

I suggest for the people who are having problems with these to install each one individually. Meaning install one, reboot, then install the next one and reboot.

i installed all 3 at one shot without rebooting each time.

i have uninstalled Daemon Tool before installing.

reinstalled back Daemon Tool after installing.

I can't install any of the updates. I can download them since I use genuine software :D , but when the installer starts, suddenly I get the message failed, that's all...

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I use the Dutch version of Home Premium? Though I think that is strange, because I can select the Dutch documentation at the download page. There's no sign of an english-restricted version...?

Thank you Tantawi! I'm indeed new here. This seems like a nice forum, so I registered. :)

I already tried to reboot, but I still get the 'failed' message when trying to install.

failed and what else does it say? Are you downloading the x86 or the x64 version but applying it to the wrong type of machine?

Yupe, I do know of the numerous improvements but I'm concern of not being able to boot my system (or any other negative side effects) after installing those patches. FYI, I'd disabled System Restore since day 1. And installing Vista again is not an option... :(

Swell, before applying the first update my startup time was ~30s or less. After applying the first update it takes greater than 60s to startup.

EDIT: And now I see the "shutting down" screen takes about ~40s to do its thing, which before installing the updates I did not even notice.

System Restore to the rescue!
