Microsoft yesterday released 13 security bulletins - nine "critical" - in its biggest monthly patch yet. Twelve patches fix multiple components in Windows and Windows-based applications and one updates an October 2004 alert to protect Exchange 2000 users against possible attack.

Hope this will solve the problem with explorer using AMD64bit CPU... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif

Is it the same if you install the Updates from your desktop?

Apofiss, which problem?

Anubis, what do you mean? 'Install from your Desktop?' You have to download them, they install themselves.

my Athlon64 runs fine in Windows XP 32bit & 64bit.. what explorer problem are you talking about Apofiss?

this is just another Security patch, nothing really essencial until you have something to protect.

I think the biggest news over the past month has been thier Anti-Spyware program, works much better :coughandfreecough: than the competitors Anti - Ad/Spy/Hack..ware programs.

It's nice finally getting software that doesn't take up all of your system resources to do jobs without noticing them. Wish to god that this stupid court ruling is over-thrown, because right now the most bloated peice of software in Windows XP is Explorer; something thier currently not allowed to create a new version.

Just hope that Longhorn's version utilises .NET with a GC, prevent alot of the bloat and memory backlogging.

I'll start with that I have none update installed. Sometimes when I make right mouse click on any Local Disk or DVD drive - there comes out an error (standart error...blah blah), but most time it's working ok (95%). With my old AMD Athalon 1700+ there wasn't that kind of problem, never.

With my old AMD Athalon 1700+ there wasn't that kind of problem, never. That is beyond dangerous! A Microsoft Windows without any updates easily contracts virii, spyware, adware, trojans, etc..
While this is used by alot of my Linux lovin' friends as a reason to convert; if Linux ever becomes that popular lets see if the roles aren't reversed http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif .. people are jerks no matter what OS you have, they just go for what's popular and most likely to do the most damage.

So get the updates, if for nothing else than your own online safety. Microsoft update security very regularly in order to deter these retards, but they also post up 'Jerry-Rig' solutions to protect while they can sort out a hard solution.

Also the updates fix alot of incompatibilities. For any OS you *MUST* install the AMD 64-bit drivers when you install your new CPU! This isn't OS based, unless the kernel knows what your CPU is; then it'll try and use it just like a 32bit Processor. While this will work 9:10 times you use software, sometimes the incompatibility creeps in.

Further more, Internet Explorer 6.x has known issues on *ALL* systems unless you have it updates correctly. Particularly until you install Service Pack 1.xx, you'll find alot of problems with it. Even after Service Pack 2.x there is a huge host of problems with the constantly having to patch the aging technology to new setups.

Fully Update your copy of Windows, then you can ask for more help on the subject. I reckon it's probably your Chipset's fault, but generally speaking you want to keep everything as current as possible.

Hmm... I'll look for AMD 64-bit drivers. :cool:

Apofiss, just BUY WindowsXP, OK? So you may download all the updates, like us. It's the better option. :rolleyes:

Isn't Windows XP the best? It sure is better than Millenium and Windows 98.
Ever since I got Windows XP, I stopped having troubles that I had with Windows Millenium.

I don't think so, it costs a LOT of money here http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif BUT I just downloaded AMD64 CPU latest drivers and everything works fine! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Windows XP Home cost 60 here, that's about the cheapest I've seen it for; and then you have SP2 versions, which start at 85 for Home... something all of the companies seems to be trying to ween people onto.

Seriously, however expensive you feel it is; unless you in the UK your not being ripped off for your hardware/software. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Besides, Windows XP 64-bit is *FREE* to download and use. Well for 6months, then you've got to get a new Activation key; but still it's free for just buying the Processor.

And not to be funny but if you can afford a brand new type of processor (Cheapest AMD Athlon64 2800 here is 90, then you need the Mobo to run it which start at 35), then how on earth can you not afford Windows XP?!

Ever since I got Windows XP, I stopped having troubles that I had with Windows Millenium.heh, I've never really had problems with either. Guess it depends on the hardware you use though, recently had *alot* of problems with XP; but it's the first time in like a decade I've bought budget hardware. Windows Millennium ran like a dream on my old Pentium3 rig; just so damn fast too, just a pitty it has horrible compatibility with software. Well that and it can't run Maya ::shakes fist at Windows NT only software::

People who don't use software within legal limits almost never have an excuse that makes sense.

I can't afford that kind of hardware yet I can afford legal copies of Windows...fancy that.

I haven't updated since they released SP2. SP2 makes my laptop run so slow! The update ballons started to disappear as well. Hmm, maybe I should update... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif

I can, but prefer lowest price http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif

Seems stealing hardware is more difficult.
