"Microsoft is warning Windows Vista users that a forthcoming service pack for the operating system may stop some third-party programs working.

The software giant has released a list of programs that may be broken by the SP1 update for Vista.

Most of the software hit by the upgrade are security programs that prevent Windows users falling prey to viruses, trojans and booby-trapped webpages.

The Windows Vista update will be released to the public in mid-March."

If you all remember when they issued the SP2 release of XP they had similar problems with security programs breaking. I think it is normal when you have a first or second service pack that some applications break. MS and the software companies need to talk ahead of time to know what things might break and start developing earlier to give updates to the customer.

Thatz why they have RTM versions where they are released to manufacturers first and give them chance to fix things in their software before it gets out to general public.
