Title: Microsoft alert
Post by: Lovelee on July 07, 2009, 03:12:44 pm
Daz, I just heard a news item about something affecting microsoft XP.  They were advising people to go to their site and do something to your comp using their site (microsofts).  Ive had a quick look around but not seeing anything new, all the old stuff is still there.  ???

I have nothing in my inbox and there appears to be nothing new online...
Can you remember what it was in regards to?


If it was MS who issued the alert then just run windows update if you're worried about it - any urgent updates should be included in there.

Interesting it was on radiolive, they said this thing was just getting out and about and would affect everyone, it would take them time to get something to stop it.

Hmm will just keep my eye out for it.

I update automatically every morning Don.

Good spotting guys - I totally missed that one!
It seems Microsoft released that by more traditional means....
