People testing Windows Vista Beta 2 may find themselves looking for resolution to some issues. As Microsoft continues to release patches/updates for Vista Beta 2 they have been posting them on one central page but the problem is that no one seems to know about it. Here are a list of updates that Microsoft has on the page:

  • Programs may crash or become unresponsive
  • The Sidebar application may crash when you install a compressed gadget
  • Running Internet Protocol security (IPsec) or Windows Firewall on a multiprocessor or hyper-threaded computer may cause your computer to crash
