    Vista Patch

    I have been told by the Techncal Support group at Dell that there is a patch
    being released for Vista at the end of October. Dell has already received
    the patch. Has anyone else heard this from their computer manufacturers??
    If this patch is going to be released, why is Microsoft keeping it such a
    secret? It's true... Vista is a complete disaster. I'm still having freeze
    issues. It just floors me that Microsoft has made NO EFFORT to even comment
    on these problems. GOD I LOVE MACS!!!!

    Re: Vista Patch

    Did Dell give you any inclination as to 'what' this so called patch was
    supposed to do? There will be a Service pack release for Vista, but that is
    still in beta at present, so there is no way it will be released this month.
    Generally Microsoft are patching the software on a regular basis and these
    you would automatically receive, assuming you have set Auto Update to
    download the patches.

    Re: Vista Patch

    Exactly what did Dell say about the patch?
    It sounds more likely the tech gave you something to get you off the
    phone.
    Call Dell back and get more details, what you have given here is
    impossible for anyone to comment since you gave no information.

    Microsoft releases patches/updates monthly, 2nd Tuesday of each month.

    "I'm still having freeze issues"
    Post more details and someone may be able to help.

    Does it freeze and lock?
    Possibly hard drive or other hardware issue.

    Or does it seem to take longer than it should?
    Possibly insufficient memory, many need a minimum of 1 GB RAM and
    possibly 2 GB RAM.

    For starters make sure you have the latest drivers.
    Do not assume a new computer shipped with the latest drivers.
    Have you added/installed any hardware or software?

    That's a DELL problem, not Vista. Ask DELL why they are keeping it a
    secret. Personally, I prefer Whoppers to Macs.

    Re: Vista Patch

    It is a Service Pack and will be released at the end of this month. They
    already have the Beta issue and say it is resolving many issues. I do have
    Auto Update. It is also going to be resolving reliability and performance.
    Just found out it will be out in December. --

    Re: Vista Patch

    If Dell was keeping it a secret, I wouldn't know about it now would I?????
    It's Microsoft that's not discussing it. My problems relate to VISTA.
    You're calling a PC a whopper???? Are you referring to screen size? Macs are
    far superior to PCs. Most people just can't afford them. Perhaps that's
    YOUR problem.
