I was under the impression it only affected XP Service Pack 1.

Nope. It may affect XP with no service pack (I don't know), but that's not a supported configuration anymore anyway, so who knows or cares.

Why would only certain places be affected by this virus? Maybe the other networks had their PCs patched or maybe they were just lucky? Please God, strike down Fox News with this virus!! :ninja:

I can foresee the meeting when this is all settle down. So, what could have setup WSUS that has come out a month ago and update ALL of our pc and we could have gotten an Anti-Virus like TrendMicro Officescan and have it update every half hour and not have any problems and all this could be done without having to do anything...weird

Someone is having a bad freaking day at work right now.

Doubtful but maybe, but water control probably doesn't run on a Windows system.

I think it would be easier to just update their PCs, rather than migrate to a new platform. :whistle:
