Hi everyone just to remind you all that Microsoft have issued a warning on the BBC news this evening that tomorrow this new virus will hit home hard.Do make sure that all your security and virus software is up to date.I have been very busy over the past 48 hours in making sure all the updates are fully current.Do not rely on your automatic update of your software it is best to make sure and update manually.NORTON is what i use and i have been able to get a further update tonight manually.The message from the news tonight is to be careful

Hi tanzanite providing when you go to the windows update site there are no further updates you should be ok?However you should still make sure your firewall and viris protection is up to date

tanzanite - Check in Control Panel, Add / Remove Programs.

Its an month old patch.

Look to see if Windows XP Hotfix KB 823980 is installed . If so, then you are covered.

Hi tanzanite. Get yourself a copy of bigfix click here
It takes a 'snapshot' of your system, then will advise you of any availble updates. Any you choose to install are saved as files in one of the bigfix directories in program files > bigfix.
I cut and paste the details of the update and save it, then after downloading save the files in the same directory, then if I every do a clean install I can just run install tham again
