Just to let you all know that Microsoft has cleared Windows XP SP2 for release, and it should be arriving via Windows Update, seperate downloads, and CD release soon.
This is a much recommended update for all Windows XP Home, Professional, Tablet Edition and Media Centre Edition users, including much tougher protection for low-level exploits, some new IE features (like a much requested pop-up blocker), and the new Security Manager which will annoy you until you actually turn on some basic security meaures, like Automatic Updates, an antivirus program, and a firewall.
If there's one microsoft patch you install this year, it should be this one if only because it carries so many fixes and tweaks (and stops Windows Update whining at you).
Bill Gates promise me, personally, that SP3 will open the secret:
Windows NT is build around a Linux kernel.
Bill and Linux work as a team in high school, and all this stuff is a GIGANTEOUS joke ( I promise).
So, Do you think SP3 will make your computer safe and disable Active-X forever?
While this ocrurr,,.. you can try to disable Active-X with SP2 and....unsuscefully..
