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.
