    please can anyone help. it may be nothing but all the same i thought that i would run it passed you guy's first.
    the problem is windows updates, im running window's me and as far as i am aware i have installed all of my critical updates from microsoft. the thing is i keep on getting a windows update every day but every time its the same update. ive tried installing this update but it keeps on comming back the next day for installation. paranoid i must be but i think that it may be a hacker disgiusing its self as a windows update. here is what i get to the exact word of what the update say's.

    The following updates are recommended for your computer. review the list of updates and click "install" to continue.

    Critical Update for Windows Media Player Script Commannds (KB828026)


    This update contains a change to the behavior of windows media player's ability to launch url's in the local computer zone from other zone's. You can help protect your computer by installing this item, you may have to restart you computer. Once you have installed this item, it cannot be removed.

    it might be a real update but it leave's me very suspicious. just in case i am supplying a hjt log.

    It looks like a genuine, if old, update (assuming you have one of the affected versions of WMP ie:6.4, 7.1 or 9); http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...8C-B176-4D3C-BE67-211DE4BF9BD0&displaylang=en

    If you do need the patch, I would opt to d/l and install it later. That way you should get an .exe file that you just have to doubleclick.

    I'm using 98 and always have trouble with Windows Updates, probably brcause I don't allow IE to run anything by default!

    PS. Just noticed the date on the MS document is very current. My reference to the patch being old was because my Google search seemed to suggest that it first came out in Oct 2004, but I may have misread it. I can't help with the HJT log but no doubt someone will check it for you in due course.
