Can anyone give me the number of the Microsoft patch issued last year which caused a slowdown of many computers? Has it been replaced or is it still one of those that you download after a reformat? I am using Win XP Pro.

Not too sure, I think they have fixed it.

Are you talking about this:

From MS support site:

May 28, 2003: Microsoft released an updated patch for
Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1). This revised patch
corrects the performance issues that some customers
experienced with the original Windows XP Service Pack
1 patch. For additional information, click the
following article number to view the article in the
Microsoft Knowledge Base:

819634 (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kbEN-US;819634) You May Experience Performance Issues After You Install the 811493

The fix for this is included in the
811493 patch (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kbEN-US;811493)

NOTE: This is a revided version of the 811493 patch
that MS re-released to fix the slow down problem
