Anyone with WinXP READ THIS!!!



i was watching The Screen Savers if any of u has TechTV and they showed a XP vulnerabilty that can erase every folder on your hard drive just by opening a webpage or email. not an attachment. just the page it self. here is the link to it http://www.techtv.com/screensavers/s...398516,00.html all the way on the bottom

or just the important part if u don't want to download the service pack 1

As mentioned earlier in the show, Microsoft released a service pack for Windows XP. It fixes a serious security hole that Microsoft has known for over 11 weeks.


The security hole involves Windows XP help. The hole allows anyone to put a link on a website that can wipe out a certain hard drive directories.


If, for whatever reason, you don't or can't download the service pack, there is an alternative solution. There is a file you can rename or delete to fix the security hole. Here are the steps:

Perform a search for a file on your C drive called "uplddrvinfo.htm".
Once you have found the file, delete it or rename it. Doing so will not hinder your ability to use Windows XP.
