Thanks sjbell, XP patched - I hope they released a patch for 98/ME too, just going to confirm....

See the CNET link "While Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 are vulnerable, Windows 98 and Windows Millennium Edition are not exposed to the same threats that exploit the WMF flaw, according to an update to a Microsoft security advisory on the issue."

I'd heard they were, only difference being that they don't use thumbnails nearly as much in Explorer. Well there is no '98 update so I'll take CNet's word for it. Thanks again.

Thanks a lot, just downloaded it. J.B.

According to A-Squared all versions of Windows are affected. click here

I suppose MSoft will get round to ME and 98 eventually.

It's clearly been a major concern for MS otherwise it wouldn't have gone to such lengths.
