Updates for Windows XP and Vista

Well today Microsoft officially (not from some website or file sharing program like BitTorent) released some updates or Service Packs for its XP and Vista operating systems. Both updates are basically a bunch of little fixes to the respective OS, but for all of you with XP, you may actually see some increase in speed by 10 percent (basically your computers will run much faster and better). To get these Service Packs, all you need to do is go to Windows Update (for XP users it is in Start- Control Panel- Windows Update (in the lower left), and in Vista it is in Start- All Programs- Windows Update) and click Check for Updates. A note for Vista users: you should download the update through Windows Update because Microsoft is actually sending out the Service Pack customized for your computer so that it can handle it well (though it may not be today so you should be checking periodically). Also for both XP and Vista users: Make sure you back up your computer if you can, because as the updates are real and should work, you can never be too carefull.

Ok then, so enjoy the update and let us know in the comments if you notice anything new or better like faster starting up times, or anything else.
