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.
