The five updates for the 32-bit version of Vista -- one was immediately replaced Tuesday with an update to the update -- fix difficulties installing the OS on PCs with more than 3GB of memory, troubles connecting with a VPN (Virtual Private Network) server, and performance problems with Internet Explorer 7 and its anti-phishing feature. The largest of the five updates, however, is one that addresses incompatibility issues for a host of applications and games, ranging from Adobe's PhotoShop to Zoo Tycoon. Multiple Microsoft titles -- Microsoft Money, Outlook 2003 -- are also on the list. Others of note include Opera 9.02, IBM Rescue and Recovery with Rapid Restore, Roxio Easy Media Creator 7.5, and RealPlayer...
The first scheduled security updates after the consumer release of Vista are pegged for Feb. 13."
