Hello, is there a CD that contains Microsoft's Security updates? I recently had to reload my Win XP with a disk from 2002. The minute I plugged in my DSL modem, I was flooded with pop ups, spyware and eventially something that cut me off from the internet all together. I did a second reformat, but now I'm "scared" to attempt the SP2 d/l which has the firewall and other security features. I've gone to Microsoft's website, but I don't see where I can order a CD, but maybe I'm not looking in the right place.

P.S. My Norton is from 2002 as well, so it's about as useful as a hole in the head.

Thx!

Do YOU have one I could borrow?

Sure, if you come to Germany to get it. Seriously, just activate the Windows XP firewall, go to Start->run and type shutdown -a click OK and then download SP2 and install it.
