I have just installed Service Pack 4 to WinNT 3.51 with Service Pack 1 already installed and observed a dramatic improvement in video performance, not only for 
MMA 2.2.3 but in other applications as well. MMA kernal performance is unaffected. I am running a 486DX2-66, 32MB RAM, Weitek P9000 Video Card. My timing 
results for graphic opertions such as the ParametricPlot and ListPlot are now comparable to results reported periodicaly on this list for a P-90 system. Kernal 
performance under WinNT is significantly better than under Win95 and with Service Pack 4, Video performance, if not breathtaking is at least acceptable.

Service pack 4 is available from Once in this directory pick the language version of winnt you are using and the 
processor. Download both the readme file and the sp4_351i.exe files. the Execute file is 10MB.
