Four “must have” updates for Vista users

August 30th, 2007

ExtremeTech lists four "must have" updates for Windows Vista:

  • First up is KB938194. This "Compatibility and Reliability" update features a host of improvements ...
  • Next, and perhaps more importantly, is the KB938979 update, for "Performance and Reliability."
  • KB940105 is a very interesting update that every single gamer using Vista will want to grab immediately. It's not available on Windows Update, so you'll need to visit the Knowledge Base article to grab it.
  • The fourth and final fix is a simple one. KB936710 simply addresses an issue with SLI/CrossFire systems running DirectX 10 games, where Vista may only use a single GPU even though you're running two in parallel.

I've installed all four of these updates and they do help improve Vista's performance and reliability considerably.
