When I booted up my Vista desktop and XP laptop first thing this morning, both machines retrieved 12 and 10 updates respectively.
One of the Vista updates, flagged as ‘important,’ got my close attention as it was described thus:
This is a reliability update. Install this microcode update to improve the reliability of systems with Intel processors.
Could it be, I wondered, that this will fix the system lockup issue I’ve been experiencing daily since installing Vista on this Dell desktop last April?
Since that update this morning, I’ve not experienced a single lockup.
