    yeah.. saw these and applied them to my vista install. To be honest, haven't seen that much noticable improvment in speed (although, I just reloaded Vista in the last week). The actual KB articles don't exist yet though.. They still haven't totally fixed my file copy issues (it shouldn't sometimes take 20+ minutes to copy a 52MB file to a network share when XP only takes me <30sec)

    Here are the actual KB articles that provide a little more detail.

    hmm.. It's not showing up on Windows Update. I think I'll wait until it does... I'm quite happy with the performance so far. :)

    I had the beta versions of these patches through Connect, and had been waiting for the final bits.

    Installed these on my Tablet earlier today, and they definitely improve the speed of large file operations (copy/move/delete). That was one of my biggest peeves with Vista since RTM, and it's good to scratch off one more thing from the list of annoyances. :)

    Which is next Tuesday.

    It might be me, but I think the one patch resolves Explorer's forgetfullness.

    That article is wrong. I installed 6 security related updates, 11 in all.

    Never mind. I read it wrong.
