    G'day all,

    A little help from anyone who has installed the service pack would be appreciated...

    I have installed the majority of the critical updates for XP already, so has anyone found conflicts when installing the whole update over these existing fixes??

    Should I remove these Hotfixes before installing the SP1??

    Any help and experience appreciated...

    Cheers.

    Cheers,

    Is there much to it over and above the existing fixes available on Windows Update?

    Damn... is that the thing I was reading about over on The Register about the Help and Support Centre? Didn't go through the whole thing, but it sounded pretty nasty.

    Cheers for the info.

    I remember someone posting a url to an article that discussed this issue and gave you steps on how to fix it if you didn't want to install SP1. Would you happen to have it?

    The problem is fixed with Windows XP SP1, but if you don't want to install SP1, you can still fix this problem. Here's how:

    1. Open the Windows Explorer and go to the following folder:
    \WINDOWS\PCHEALTH\HELPCTR\System\DFS
    2. Right click on the file uplddrvinfo.htm and click the Rename command. Rename the file to uplddrvinfo.htm.old
    3. If you install any service packs or fixes after renaming the file, check the file again and make sure it doesn't return. If it does, just rename it again.

    I suggest that you rename the file with a random name. If everyone uses the same name a hacker can still exploit the hole. A hacker only needs to know the new name of the file and then name of the directory that they want to erase. I strongly recommend that you delete the file altogether. Deleting the file will not hurt XP.

    Hope this helps. :thumb:
