Just had following email sent to me:-

We kindly ask you to install this update to your PC as soon as possible.
In the libraries of OS Windows® critical errors have been found. This errors lead to destruction of the system files from your computer without an opportunity on restoration. The given service-pack fixes libraries and does not allow various Trojan modules to penetrate into your computer.

I can't tell you if its a spoof or not but have to say you're right to be cynical.

Hi, Microsoft DOES NOT send out e.mails. Everyone should be aware of that by now. There have been many warnings in the past. a reminder every so often for the newer members may be a good thing. Cheers, Bill
