Default Updates for Vista Beta 2

People testing Windows Vista Beta 2 may find themselves looking for resolution to some issues. As Microsoft continues to release patches/updates for Vista Beta 2 they have been posting them on one central page but the problem is that no one seems to know about it. Here are a list of updates that Microsoft has on the page:

* Programs may crash or become unresponsive
* The Sidebar application may crash when you install a compressed gadget
* Running Internet Protocol security (IPsec) or Windows Firewall on a multiprocessor or hyper-threaded computer may cause your computer to crash
* Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) data may not be sent to Microsoft
* Update for the Junk E-mail and Phishing Filter features in Windows Mail is available
* Manual activation fails after the 14-day grace period and generates the following error code: “0×800705B4″
* You lose Internet connectivity after you install Windows Vista Beta 2 on a computer that is behind a home router or gatewayYou lose Internet connectivity after you install Windows Vista Beta 2 on a computer that is behind a home router or gateway

Prineter companies are the least of the worries. You have Scanners, Gfx cards, Other USB devices, Webcams, Digital Cameras. all these devices need some form of driver or another.

To bad most companies dont support Beta software to create the drivers needed...
