    so, the vista update flamexed my sound thingy, I went to device manager, it wasn't enabled anymore, went to enable and the driver install failed, went to search for drivers, it wouldn't find one on the internet, searched for the driver through the applet, picked the latest driver, reinstalled and all is well

    so the update needs an update and it might mess up some of your hardware

    beware

    no, that's the multiple updates they released this week, not the sp

    I sure hope the sp will replace and delete all of these patches, my hardrive is kinda full with only 7 gigs left
