823559: Security Update for Microsoft Windows

823559: Security Update for Microsoft Windows - this recent Windows update is not labelled SP2 unlike all other recent updates.

Does this indicate that Windows XP SP2 is now complete and to be released shortly?

I think this is an update for Windows 98 not XP.

It is not available on the XP update site and google searches only show it for 98

Affected Software:

Microsoft Windows 98
Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition
Microsoft Windows Me
Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Server
Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Terminal Server Edition
Microsoft Windows 2000
Microsoft Windows XP
Microsoft Windows Server 2003

Thanks for that, it is obviously not been put on the update site yet.

It's been a hard morning - just had another look on my add/remove list and its is shown as
"Hotfix KB823559" and not in the normal
"Hotfix (SP2)etc format.

That was my point, no SP2 reference!

I was wondering if that was significant?

It is certainly unusual, it seems like it is not a proper update more a patch? que sera

Two new updates:
821557: Security Update (Windows XP)
Security Update for Windows XP (823980)

Again no SP2 reference - therefore I assume SP2 is already on its way?
