According to Microsoft Trustworthy Computing: Security,
this critical update does not apply to those of us who have installed WinXP SP2, right?
Important Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) is not affected by this issue. Windows XP SP2 users only need to update Office (if installed).
Windows Update indicated that I should install the critical update for WordPerfect on account I have Office 2000 on my pc. So, I installed MS04-027 ONLY.
