Hi!Thanks for the heads up on this. I un-installed the 811493 patch and WOW! my system did improve in performance!MSFS2K2 is running much better along with ALL my applications after removing this patch.I was wondering why the performance of my system had decreased, even with my other applications besides MSFS.Once again, thanks for the info, it really helped!Scott :-)ATP/CFII - KCOS

Wow! I thought I was going crazy with my computer. Performance was degrading and I've been playing with my fs2002 graphics settings. I just uninstalled this patch and will see if it helps.
