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.

:):rolleyes:

These security related updates may disable your ability to copy and/or play Secure Content and use other software on your computer.

When you use Windows update you will not see this agreement.
