Is this something that I should keep?

I would. Here's why.

One of the annoyances I've seen for years is how poorly Microsoft handled corrupt images, documents, video and so on. It's always been a theory that such crashes by such corrupt images could be exploitable.

The code leak a year ago of Windows source code effectively demonstrated that issue was not hallucination with exploits with... a bitmap. Such was fixed, but not for Windows NT 4.0 and prior as well as Windows 95 and prior.

You may have not read why this patch came out so I'll ask you look into that.

Sorry, I read about and it said XP Service Pack 2 was not affected. Is that right?

Why SP2 is not affected.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / September 15, 2004 3:16 AM PDT

It's a post-SP2 patch.

You may need to look into and read how Microsoft issues patches. I'd rather not cover that in this small space.

Depending where u downloaded it... If not sure, you can just go to:

Win XP: Start, All Programs,Accessories,System Tools, and click on Systed Restore.

95, 98, Me: Programs, Accessories,System Tools, and click on Systed Restore.


Then you just have to select the dave before you've installed the update. That will delte everything you did during that date.

Hope im being useful..

Iktgdt, I cannot answer the uninstall question. This update came up for me today at the Windows Update site as an urgent update using SP-2. I downloaded it at Microsoft's urgency. I note it does not appear as a hotfix in the normal Add/Remove programs list. Don't know where it went or if there is an uninstall procedure. Windows Update indicates the download was successful as did the closing screen of the download page.

I'm a little baffled but since I have it will keep it seeing no other alternative.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
