    I read somewhere a while back that MS was punishing users for taking advantage of unofficial fixes for MS flaws or vulnerabilities. Do you know if they are still doing that?

    I don't know the answer. But I'll not download and install that patch if I'm not sure of it. It is mentioned at Calendar of Updates, BleepingComputer, and CastleCops, I don't know if there are others.

    Post at CastleCops say that the patch will not work on 98 too.
    The MS fix will be out next week so I will not go crazy waiting. I keep things safe so I should be ok so will wait.
