How to improve the performance and reliability of Windows® Vista without upgrading to Service Pack 1

Windows® Vista is advanced operation system (OS), developed by Microsoft. in order to replace the aging Windows® XP. It contained many improvements in all spheres – better support for peripheral devices, improved were both multimedia playing capabilities and multimedia creation tools, better memory handling and so on. At the time of its launch many believed this will lead to huge advancement for Microsoft®. But when some time passed few things turned out to be not so good – some random lockups, badly tested software and lots of other problems were noticed by users. With the release of Windows® Vista SP1 most of these issues were addressed, but it turned out some programs will fail to work with SP1, and so the need of patch to address main issues without full upgrade to SP1 became obvious.

How can you make your Window® Vista faster and more reliable without installing Vista SP1

First thing you should check is whether you use 32-bit version of Windows® Vista, or the 64-bit edition. You can do this by opening “Start” menu, right clicking “Computer” and selecting “Properties”. Your type of the OS should be written under “System” section. Please be sure to check this before you continue with this article.

After you have checked this important information download the appropriate version from the site of Microsoft:

  • for the 32-bit of the OS

Microsoft® Vista stability patch – 32-bit edition

  • or for the 64-bit version

Microsoft® Vista stability patch – 64-bit edition

Once the download is complete stop all programs running and apply the patch by running the EXE file. The short list of issues this patch will address is:

  • if you try to exit the Photos screen saver, you experience a long delay.
  • if you use the Windows Energy screen saver, a memory leak occurs.
  • when User Account Control is disabled on the computer, you cannot install a network printer successfully.
  • when you write data to an AVI file by using the AVIStreamWrite function, the file header of the file is corrupted.
  • if you copy or move a large file, the “estimated time remaining” takes a long time to be displayed.
  • when you resume the computer from hibernation, it takes a long time to display the logon screen.

Also addressed are many issues that caused system instability, driver compatibility issues and so on.

You should attempt to download and install this patch only if you experience problems with your pre SP1 Windows® Vista, and cannot install Vista SP1 for some reason. Windows® Vista Service Pack 1 includes many more patches, upgrades, additional drivers for hardware devices, makes your system much more stable. Overall SP1 makes Windows® Vista what it should have been from the very beginning, while the discussed stability patch only helps in some areas, so consider the upgrade.
