If you're running firewall/antispyware/antivirus, then you shoun't be worry. And if you got infected with all 3 programs working, then just gives the companies a call and says "HEY, YOUR PROGRAM SUCKS!!!"

Did you say a "singular" ... there are more holes in the security of XP than in a pound of swiss cheeze. They fix one to make everyone HAppy HAppy but don't tell you of the others they haven't fixed yet
No matter how you look at it it's still DOS ie. Defective Operating System, always was and always was and will always be.
