April 12, 2005: Win XP SP2 goes automatic

  View Printable Version 
Windows

After releasing Windows XP Service Pack 2 in August last year, Microsoft gave everyone a 120 (later 240) day grace period in which the Automatic Update wouldn't automatically download and install it.

On April 12, 2005, this grace period is over.

So whether you like it or not, all of XP SP2's 270 megabytes will come to your Windows computer after April 12.

Quick tip - use SFC to verify your system

  View Printable Version 
WindowsIf you want to verify the system files on a Windows 2000 or Windows XP installation, get out the installation cd, and run sfc /scannow. This command will verify all system files against those on the cd. Neat. OH, and 'sfc' means System File Checker.

Microsoft ship patches on free CDs

  View Printable Version 
WindowsAs mentioned here before, you can now get a free CD from Microsoft containing all patches for or Windows XP, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows 98, and Windows 98 Second Edition (SE). The patches are current through October 2003. The patch CD isn't available in all countries yet.

In case you haven't noticed, a fresh install of Windows XP requires over 100 Mb of patches to be up to date security wise. You will of course have to visit Windows Update to plug the holes discovered since October.

Order your CD at http://www.microsoft.com/security/protect/cd/order.asp

Windows security updates on CD

  View Printable Version 
WindowsGood news for all the Windows 98/SE/Me users on dialup lagging behind in patching their installations.

According to Windows & .Net Magazine, MS have started beta testing a CD-ROM with security (and other?) patches for these Windows versions. And don't laugh. I see computers with Windows 98 and SE every so often, almost all of them lacking about 50 megs worth of patches.
