    Hi Robb,

    In case Bill doesn't read this until later, I believe he's saying that
    people should ensure that they've downloaded/installed the Security Update
    for Windows XP (KB958644) as described at
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms08-067.mspx.

    Yes, you're right, Robin.

    Last night -- right after I read Bill's post -- I went to the site and
    installed it.

    I forgot that I had already installed it back on October 23rd, but it
    re-installed without any problems.

    So maybe now I'm doubly protected. :)

    Hi Robin,

    I just went to the site and "installed" it again. I have no idea if it's
    actually re-installing again, but there are none of the usual nag messages
    telling me that the installation already exists.

    However, after the "install," I am NOT told that I need to re-boot. So maybe
    it realizes that whatever needed to be fixed was all set from an earlier
    time.

    It's always better to use Microsoft Update
    (http://www.update.microsoft.com/) than downloading specific patches,
    unless it's a hotfix. Explicitly downloading and installing patches may
    actually wipe out newer updates (which will not happen when using
    Microsoft Update).

    Hi Pat,

    I pretty much always do go through Windows Updates, although I do it
    manually rather than via Automatic Updates.

    But, when I did go to WU last night after I saw Bill's message, it didn't
    show that I needed anything, so I went the manual route for the hotfix.

    Of course, a little later when I went back to WU and checked my install
    history I saw that KB 958644 had first been installed on October 23.

    C'est la vie. ;->

    Am I right in thinking that fix forms part of XP SP 3? I`m showing it on my

    If you look at the date of folder %WINDIR%\$NtUninstallKB958644$ you
    will know when it was installed.

    Looking at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/958644 I see that it has a
    revision number of 1.3 - meaning it had been issued previously, possibly
    as part of SP3.

    P.S. on the other hand, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946480/ does not

    have also had a version rev in SP3.

    Hi all,

    is it still necessary to patch KB956644 or has that been covered already by
    the latest SP3 Patch?
