Protect your PC ... maybe [Aug. 17th, 2004|02:17 pm]
Peter Sheil
As of Wednesday Microsoft will be shipping Windows XP SP2 from their update site - you may even get it downloaded without having to do anything if you've set up your system to do so (a mistake in my opinion).

Here is the article on the BBC's site about it
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/3571110.stm

... and here is the Microsoft knowledge base article including all the programs which will stop working when you install SP2.

Also see http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=884130 (thanks Tom).

Peace

Re: hmmm.....

You had exactly as much info as I had :) I did say it was impossible didn't I? I'll ring her in a while and see what state it's in.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll see if they make any sense to her :)
