Why has Microsoft reissued this bulletin?

Subsequent to the release of this bulletin and the associated patches, a performance related problem was identified with the Windows XP Service Pack 1 version of the patch. This problem is unrelated to the security vulnerability discussed in this bulletin, however the problem has caused some customers to notice performance degradation on Windows XP SP1 systems after applying the patch.

Microsoft has corrected this problem and re-issued this bulletin on May 28, 2003 to advise on the availability of a revised patch for Windows XP Service Pack 1.

Revisions of patch 811493:

# V1.0 April 16, 2003: Bulletin Created.
# V1.1 April 17, 2003: Included correct patch supercedence information for Windows 2000.
# V1.2 April 23, 2003: Added information regarding performance related issues with Windows XP SP1 patch
# V1.2 April 23, 2003: Added link to KB article that discusses performance related issues with Windows XP SP1 patch
# V2.0 May 28, 2003: Re-issued to advise of availability of revised Windows XP SP1 patch to correct performance issues

This new update is available as Q815021 XP from the Windows Update site.

Anyone game enough to try it? :D
