About eight patches for various applications are
scheduled for downloading. Have a good time! TC.

I've also posted this information in the HelpRoom earlier this afternoon.

Windows XP users *might* be vulnerable to e-mails claiming to be from Microsoft this week.

On April 12, Microsoft will make the Windows XP Service Pack 2 upgrade "automatic" for any machine that uses the Windows Update utility.

Email "scammers" may send YOU e-mails with subject lines such as:

"Urgent Windows Update" "Update your windows machine" "Important Windows Update."

The e-mails will encourage users to update their Windows software immediately and included the link to a bogus web site.

Microsoft *DOES NOT* notify users of updates this way....

PLEASE delete any such emails you receive!

I don't have these problems with W2000.

I've just had a look and see no updates either. Strange, wonder where crx1600's came from and why they don't appear for me?

  Totally-braindead 19:30 12 Apr 2005

Sorry just reread the original posting, the updates are not specifically for XP but for applications, that explains why they are not there for me.

Just downloaded and installed 6 "high priority" updates from Windows Update.

  Totally-braindead 20:50 12 Apr 2005

I've just got it to work, its strange though. If I pick Express Install which is the recommended option nothing shows but if I pick Custom Install they are there to download. Anyway doesn't really matter as I got them in the end, thanks TOPCAT.
