Microsoft Windows XP Security Patches

Hi guys ..

I have just recently installed a Windows XP into my machine and updated it with SP1a. However I did not choose the other updates as I remember reading elsewhere that some of it has certain problems and causes unknown or side effects such as slowing down the machine.

The reason is I did the installation before this one, and updated all the patches and I did find the PC to be rather "slow" and "jerking" while taking a long time to respond on some occassions. Worst yet .. it hanged just now .. when no programs was installed other than Office XP. :huh:

So any advise on which is the best to install please? : )

After applying SP1a you installed the patches from windows update including patch 811493?

If so remove 811493 from Add/Remove programs and the system should be OK.

Its a local security issue so dont worry to much about not having it patched! You would need the ability to log on locally in order to exploit this issue.

Thanks Enyo .. what about the other "recommended" updates? Do you think they are worth installing or should I just ignore them? Most of 'em has nothing to do with me or the system that I am using .. :D

Just ignore them i do :D Unless they are for something you use, a error you have or of a important nature forget them they will be covered in the next service pack that has been quality assured.

Nothing major has come to my attention, i would think the guys on neowin.net will know all about it however, most of them afterall are running it already! ;)

I'm sure that they have some kind of end of user agreement, like with 95, they no longer make updates for it, I think 98 may have run out or is going to very shortly and NT was meant to or something? when will xp run out?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
