Vista update disables USB devices

Bookmark and Share

by Jan Harris

Microsoft is investigating claims that a security update for Vista causes USB devices, including, flash drives, mice and keyboards, to stop working.

Microsoft released the update last week to remove a security flaw in its spyware blocker, Windows Defender.

The company’s advice was to remove and reinstall the devices, but unfortunately this did not solve the problem for most people.

Microsoft has also finally released Vista service pack one (SP1) in the remaining 31 languages, as a manual download via its Windows Update site.

The automatic version is not yet available, missing Microsoft’s deadline of mid-April.
