New Windows Update

  Rhuddlan 14:22 26 Jul 2004

The windows update icon appeared in my taskbar earlier today and was downloading updates and when they finished, I was asked to install this update, when I clicked on the icon the window appeared and looked very different, it asks me if I want to install the express or custom installation for the update, it doesn't tell me what the update is like it used to!!! I also noticed that the windows update page is now version 5, when I checked yesterday it was version 4!!! Should I install this update? Regards, Rhuddlan.

No recent updates for my machines.

Have you asked for SP2 at any time? It may be something to do with that.

I got an uodate last night. It was linked with a javascript intrusion that would be possible after being invited to a website with malicious coding (I think)

I haven't asked for the beta version service pack 2 though, so is it alright to download?

Have installed the update and I notice many new changes, which are good, the security centre is saying that it is monitoring Norton Internet Secuity but doesn't know it's status, so i have asked the firewall to stop monitoring it and haven't disabled the windows firewall as I prefer my own on Norton, is there a known problem with norton and sp2? Should I be worried about this?
