Is it wise to download ALL Microsoft Service Packs, or should we be selective? I am thinking of d/loading the latest [& large!] one. People I have spoken to have wildly different opinions, some advocate "have 'em all" others are cautious, even suspicious. As to Blaster2, is this the same as NT Authority? & then there is SoBigF [News of this from TechNews at Washington Post]....any solutions yet on THIS one? Thirdly, Firewalls:- what are the opinions of TS members & staff on the neccessity of having an extra one installed?, I believe XP Home already has one, but it has to be turned on, is this correct? That's about it for now, hope the powers that be at TS don't "rap me over the knuckles" again, this time for too much content, should I be be putting forward separate messages for each subject? please tell me if that is preferred.
