Microsoft June 2009 security patch seems to speed up some computers


Trend Labs has a Malware blog, and has a list of Microsoft and Adobe patches, for June 2009 at this link.

I got the updates yesterday (June 11) for Microsoft and I found that the time to restart did improve considerably, halving the time. The boot up time was faster both on cold and warm boots, so I wonder if there were fixes to the nVidia interface or to some problem that causes registry errors. The computer seemed to run faster, too. This is an XP Home Dell 8300 from back in 2003 (old, I know), with automatic updates including SP3.
