Important Windows Update

There’s a nasty Windows exploit going around. Microsoft has finally released a patch for it, and I strongly encourage every Windows user to make sure your computer (both work and home) is up to date.You can accomplish this by visiting http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com, or more simply by clicking “Start”, then “All Programs”, then “Windows Update”.If this proves problematic, please feel free to contact us at systems@mcs.anl.gov to assist.I’ve provided links to the specific fix for both Windows XP and Windows 2000 in case Microsoft’s servers get too bogged down, or for those who want to go it alone. I downloaded these from Microsoft this afternoon.Thanks.http://www.mcs.anl.gov/systems/windows/Windows2000-KB925902-x86-ENU.EXE http://www.mcs.anl.gov/systems/windows/WindowsXP-KB925902-x86-ENU.exe
