Default Microsoft Dirty Tricks? 'Security Update' plugs up Internet - Solution Get Vista


I personally am witness to some strange happenings on my computer - namely my Mozilla Firefox was VERY SLOW, AND HANGING OFTEN. Its not that my computer is fast, its VERY FAST with 4GB of Ram, a Quad Core Phenon 9600 Processor, ad infinitum.

Strangely and magically when I unstalled the latest security patches from 'Microzoft' all of a sudden the machine speed up incredibly - and my Mozilla is working well again... Lets get realistic here - Windows XP has been out for several years now, and they are still releasing 'patches' for it. Strangely I also noticed that my Mozilla Firefox would hang, but my Internet Explorer would still work. I would physically throw the computer into the garbage before I would use Internet Explorer - PERIOD.

Vista is a crime against humanity all you need to read is found at BadVista.org: Stopping Microsoft Windows Vista adoption by promoting free software — BadVista and now I am wondering if they are 'encouraging' transition over to Vista by 'crippling' XP with 'security patches.'

Anyone noticing anything similar?

the only thing close to that was, java screwed up firefox, or maybe it was a bad download for a java update.

but anytime I tried to save anything with firefox on xp, it just took ages to download it AND release the browser so I could scroll down etc...

I don't trust them anymore than the next guy, but I can't say for sure that you are right.

They might possibly be doing that as Vista is not getting a lot of sales. I know someone who has Vista and they said that when they download stuff off the internet and try to install a message comes up saying that it is not compatible w/ Vista. Thanks for the info as I will no longer download any patches for my XP.
