    Microsoft Security Updates - January 2008

      Microsoft has issued a few important security updates that should applied promptly. These updates worked well on both of my XP PCs at work and will require a reboot.

          Yep,

          I currently have installed the above updates on approximately 40 XP and W2000 machines.. No problems so far and YES, it does require a reboot in all cases.

          In addition, all the Windows XP machines which are running Internet Explorer 6 also receive the KB946627 Hotfix update which fixes the problem with some XP SP2 machines that have problems opening certain websites.

          Hope this helps.
