    FYI - Microsoft announced 5 new critical security update patches today. You may want make sure you update your system. After all you need to be ready tomorrow for their next critical security patch.

    Not for Windows 98. What are you using, XP?

    Windows 2000. Are they still providing updates for Windows 98? I thought those were stopped a while back.

    Yes, I am still getting them. Got one the last time someone mentioned a critical update alert here not too long ago.

    Mutter, mutter, mutter. Why can't someone create a really easy-to-install, easy-to-use OS to replace MxxSxxt???

    I've got XP running on a Celeron at 2.1 Gh, with 512Megs memory and a DSL connection. But it just took me something like 15-20 minutes to do Windows Update, reboot, and get back here.

    Grrrr. mutter, mutter, mutter some more!!!

    even the ppl who are running Win95 should check for patches once in a while. Even though MS doesn't support that system any more, if they feel the need is critical enough they'll do something for it.


    Herb the MCSE based on 95, dammit.
