In case you haven't heard about this (it was news to me).

M$ have recently provided updated drivers for USB 1.1 and 2.0. It appears that the USB driver updates in the XP Service Pack 1 were faulty and this update fixes them.

People on the AVSIM forum are reporting up to 25% increase in FPS and fixed crashes/stutters due to this update. I suspect this is only going to happen for some systems that were experiencing trouble, but it's worth a try.

See http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=822603 for more info.

Happy tweaking.

Nice post m8!

I have 1 or 2 USB devices (10 actually) and have noticed strange issues, like my USB Wireless Netgear adapter keeps going AWOL, or the mouse and/or X45 will stop responding.

Hopefully this will fix it!

Thanks.

Thanks for the tip. I DLd it and it did increase my FPS a bit. I also noticed the game play seems smoother.... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Thanks for the link! The update seems to have fixed a small but annoying problem I had with my mouse.

Happens for me on Windows 2000 too, though. I think
it's the adapter more than anything else, to be honest.

Since this appears to be doing some good for some, I thought I'd bump it back to the front page for our friends across the pond.

Just thought that I'd add that you might already have this update installed if you use Windows Update regularly (I do and I had it already).

How to check? Check the listing of installed programs with the "Add/Remove Programs" application in the control panel (Start->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs). It will be listed as

"Windows XP Hotfix - KB822603"
