As per email, "yes nis".

Pauliney, can you please reply to the thread, so other people can see what is being said.

You NEED to up-date that.

What about Firewall? Do you have one, apart from the Windows one. It's rubbish.

You will need to goto the Ms update site to get all the security updates.

If it's new, it may have SP2 already. Right click My Computer, Properties.
