The Service Packs Are Coming!

Thursday, October 18th, 2007 by | Filed Under: Security Help

The Service Packs Are Coming!

As I’m sure some of you already know, approximately every year or so, Microsoft releases service packs for their various operating systems. Well, we here at WorldStart have just been informed that new service packs are going to be coming soon for both Windows XP and Windows Vista. Yes!

For Windows XP, Service Pack 3 will be coming out at the beginning of 2008 (and just in case you haven’t looked at a calendar lately, that’s only a few months away!) Microsoft just released it for testing to the IT community, so it will be ready for everyone very soon. The XP SP 3 will package together all previous updates that have been released since the last service pack (2), along with some other new items. The updated version includes a few security patches, a much easier way to activate Windows XP and a network access protection module.

Now, for Windows Vista, its Service Pack 1 will be released by the end of this year (2007). This service pack will also include all of the previous updates for Windows Vista, along with a few new items. The Vista SP 1 will have some security updates and a new feature that will allow users to create a recovery disk. Awesome!

All of this is great news for Windows users! It will save you all time on those updates you’re always having to download and it will also ensure that you have received everything you need to keep your Windows computer up to date and ready for anything. The service pack for Vista will also fix any of the Vista issues that came about when the new operating system was first released.

It’s all coming your way very soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
