In preparation for Vista SP1...

    Tomorrow, Tuesday 8 January, we are releasing several non-security update
    packages via Windows Update. The updates include the regular monthly
    Malicious Software Removal Tool and Windows Mail Junk Mail Filter, two
    updates in our regular series of Windows Vista updates (KB943302 for
    application compatibility and KB943899 for reliability and performance), and
    one update of particular notice: KB935509. Similar to previous updates that
    enhanced Windows Vista’s performance and reliability, these updates will be
    distributed automatically through Windows Update.

    Tomorrow’s KB935509 release is a little different than past updates. It is
    a prerequisite for installing SP1 and is applicable only for Windows Vista
    Ultimate and Enterprise users, because it only affects versions of Windows
    Vista supporting BitLocker Drive Encryption.

    This update modifies the boot loader to enable successful install or
    uninstall of the service pack if the PC uses BitLocker encryption. We’re
    releasing it now to lay the groundwork for future updates and to eliminate
    any extra reboots by installing it along with updates that already require a
    reboot. For more information on the update, see KB article KB935509 (which
    will be posted on Tuesday morning).

    In addition to KB985509, there are two other updates that will be
    prerequisites for Windows Vista SP1, for all versions of Windows Vista.
    They will be released at a later date and will improve the installation
    experience and reliability for the service pack as well as for individual
    update packages.

    SP1 development and testing efforts are continuing as expected and we remain
    on track for its release later this quarter.
