Microsoft Releases Slew of Minor Vista Fixes

Microsoft has posted a number of Vista fixes to its download Web site in the past week.

Four of the downloads -- KB945435, KB945335, KB945145 and KB945145 -- deal with issues related to WebDAV in Vista, particularly on start-up.

The company also released an update (KB945149) to improve graphics performance in Vista on x64 systems.

Other fixes released Monday address issues with WPF (KB938660 and KB938660) and MMC snap-ins (KB944652 and KB944652).

These fixes come on the heels of several downloads posted last week, including a fix for issues encountered with partially installed language packs (KB947506) and security updates for Vista SP1 RC0 (KB941644 and KB94164).
