Sweet, I know when I switch to the MSI file format in Irfanview, the video's run a whole lot slower, and then I have to switch back to letting windows media player be the format for it. I'm downloading this software right now, this is an absolute must have!!!!!

Wow, I somehow missed the post outlining the manual install of this patch. Downloading and installing it now. I was actually getting slightly worried this morning after hearing more on how serious this exploit can potentially be.Made me happy I was forced to be away from a computer over new-years. For someone like me who does all their banking and bill paying online, exploits such as the WMF are a great source of paranoia and uncertainty!

I've been waiting for this all week. I just put together a new computer, going from ME to XP, and this pops up. It's funny that there is a faster response from the software community than from Microsoft.

Seriously, give this guy a break guys. He's doing the right thing, downloading this patch, although for a wrong reason.
