Automatic Updates on Win2k notified me of this update before the security email went into my inbox! Looks as if Microsoft are now putting in the effort of keeping their Windows Update site with the latest patches as they come out, which they were slow to do in the past. Good thing! :)

When you update Windows Media Player don't forget this.

exactly WHAT do you block though?
since installing sp1 ive had some very odd alerts in my firewall, windows kernel pings and LIS shell pings and crap, all blocked but what exactly do we need to block? i doubt its just media player!

what gets me is HOW DARE MICORSOFT INVADE YOUR PERSONAL COMPUTER.

what next, if it finds a linux partition it formats it or messes with code!? because ms dont like linux.. they think its "unamerican"
