I just uncovered 40 windows security updates which I must have missed somehow. Don't laugh. I do regularly look for these things. It's just that Microsoft wants me to load XP SP2 and I have been warned/scared off for years by many. Now I find out that Microsoft will stop supporting SP1 in October. Soon I will have to jump. I won't be alone. Where will YOU be?
I just can't afford to lose data or programs, and since that's the jolly warning you get before you load SP2 - 'backup anything you wish to keep!' - I have resisted.
