Believe it or not, Microsoft provides the means to break apart the Windows Aero in Windows Vista, and the entire graphical user interface of the operating system for that matter. However, there are a couple of pre-requisites for such a scenario, and they involve the preinstalled Norwegian version of Windows Vista and the deployment of Microsoft update 932635 designed to tackle problems with textual elements. Fortunately, Microsoft now provides a resolve for this issue in the Knowledge Base article 935759.

Windows Vista can perform poorly in the context of a VPN connection, because the operating system first starts synchronizing files to the server and only then checks to see if the connection is slow.

KB 934202 will fix such slow performance.
