Operations that use a USB device take a long time to complete on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008

Symptoms

You perform some operations that use a USB device on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008. However, these operations take longer than expected to complete.

For example, you use a USB smartcard to log on to a domain or to sign email messages. When you try to use the tokens that are stored in the smartcard, the operation takes about two to three minutes. However, you expect the operation to complete in several seconds.

Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 file information notes

Important Windows Vista hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, only "Windows Vista" is listed on the Hotfix Request page. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows Vista" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.

  • The files that apply to a specific product, SR_Level (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table.

MANIFEST files and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are very important to maintain the state of the updated components.
