Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Installed, Tested, Works Better

From Dvice:

"You might have heard that Microsoft rolled out the first service pack for Windows Vista yesterday, claiming to fix lots of bugs, make the operating system more secure and, well, we hoped maybe it could even cure all known diseases. Maybe we were too optimistic. We took Service Pack 1 (SP1) for a spin, and didn't notice a whole lot of difference. It's a 434.5MB download for the entire stand-alone installation, or you can wait for it to automatically update your current Vista operating system by simply doing nothing but having auto updates enabled."

The story is too old to be commented.

For this story, I choose to believe bestbuy over the guy complaining.

Does this work with the Home Basic version? I had to downgrade my Laptop to Basic due to lack of video card...

TriggerHappy3410d ago

I think it works with all versions but my advice would be to wait a day or two more before updating to see if it is really safe to update it.

Good idea. +Bubble for you :)

It works for both my HP laptop and Dell desktop, both running Home Basic. Only thing that broke was the sound system on the laptop, so I had to reinstall the drivers.

Copying files is faster now, but I still get crashes from Windows Explorer once in awhile.
