Security updates are still being offered by Microsoft (through next June, I believe). It is important to bring your Dad's install of Windows 2000 up to the current patch level. A visit to Windows Update will do the trick for the Windows software. Other things (e.g., Adobe's Flash, Acrobat reader, etc.) may also need a version refresh to be safe for the 'Net. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
