    Ya just checking it out :


    To use this latest version of Windows Update, you will need to upgrade some of its components. This version provides you with the following enhancements to our service:


    Express and custom installation: Choose only the most recent critical updates or pick and choose from all available updates.

    Smarter downloads: If downloading is interrupted, the process will start up where it left off the next time you download that update.

    Smaller downloads: Only the files your computer needs are downloaded, saving download time and connection-speed costs.

    One version: Only the most recent updates are offered to you.

    Less clutter: You can now hide updates you don't want to see.

    Update news: A News from Microsoft section on the Windows Update home page displays tips and the latest information.

    No problems disabled the Genuine advantage thru add on management I just
    reinstalled win xp on Friday so guess I did n't have it . One Security update failed tho have to check that out .

    yes it uses validation
    did you really expect M$ to abandon validation?

    anyway, this doesn't sound any different than the last Windows Update release....

    Its funny Symantec taper protection would'nt install this one .

    Security Update for Windows XP (KB913446)
    A security issue has been identified in Windows-based systems that could allow an attacker to cause the affected machine to stop responding to requests. You can help protect your computer by installing this update from Microsoft. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.

    Wonder what that is ? The stupid virus remover tool of MS I wonder .

    I googled "KB913446" security update and tryed MS info but no luck .

    yup, same update failed here too, on my XP Pro box
    don't remember any error messages on my Win2k box,
    I'm wondering if it has to do with the legitimacy of my XP installation?
