Vista Gets New Performance & Stability Patch

Microsoft has released a patch for those who are running a Vista based system and still having issues with compatibility, reliability, and stability. This is the second major update of its type in the last few months.

According to Redmond, the patch includes the following improvements:

• It extends the battery life for mobile devices.
• It improves the stability of portable computers and of desktop computers that use an uninterruptable power supply (UPS).
• It improves the reliability of Windows Vista when you open the menu of a startup application.
• It improves the stability of wireless network services.
• It shortens the startup time of Windows Vista by using a better timing structure.
• It shortens the recovery time after Windows Vista experiences a period of inactivity.
• It shortens the recovery time when you try to exit the Photos screen saver.
• It improves the stability of Windows PowerShell.

This update also resolves the following issues in Windows Vista:
• A compatibility issue that affects some third-party antivirus software applications.
• A reliability issue that occurs when a Windows Vista-based computer uses certain network driver configurations.

I wonder If any one can help with a problem I've got with a keysonic keyboard. The problem is my PC will not boot up with the keysonic USB dongle plugged in. But if I boot up the PC with the old keyboard and then connect the keysonic It works ok until I reboot then It won't boot up. The keyboard is not the problem as Its the second one and its been tested,
Im using Windows vista on a dell 210 xps.
Many thanks in advance

Have you tried updating the BIOS on your Dell at all? Although it is extremely rare, sometimes USB input devices can stop the bootup of a machine in the way you explained.

Most recently Razer had exactly the same problem with one of their mice and a certain type of motherboard.
