The current versions of Windows Vista and of Windows Server 2008 do not support the Message-Signaled Interrupts mechanism on a VIA processor. When you install the VIA processor, these operating systems cannot use the Message-Signaled Interrupts feature.

For example, you have both a VIA Nano CPU and an ATI PCI-E VGA card installed on a computer that is running Windows Vista. After you enter the system and you check the MSI Enable bit in the ATI PCI-E VGA card, you find that the bit is always set to 0 unexpectedly.

UpdatesDescription: This security update addresses a privately reported vulnerability in Windows Movie Maker and Microsoft Producer 2003.

The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if an attacker sent a specially crafted Movie Maker or Microsoft Producer project file and convinced the user to open the specially crafted file. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights. The security update addresses the vulnerability by changing the way that Windows Movie Maker parses project files. Continue reading “KB975561”
