Vista has already had flaws that can compromise the whole system by merely

| Installing Microsoft's Tuesday patch for a "critical" Windows
| vulnerability is causing trouble for some users.
|
| Microsoft broke with its monthly patch cycle on Tuesday to repair a
| bug in the way Windows handles animated cursors. Cyber crooks had
| been using the hole since last week to attack Windows PCs. But the
| fix is not compatible with software that runs audio and networking
| components from Realtek Semiconductor, some Windows users have
| found.
|
| Dave House, a reader of silicon.com sister site CNET News.com, wrote
| in an email: "Apparently the update is not compatible with Realtek.
| We lost all Ethernet and audio functions. Removing the update and
| doing system restores brought the systems back."
