Hi everyone, I'm new here, just posted about my CBS log problems but thought I would ask some questions about Vista while I'm here. I just updated Windows, and the update was (copied and pasted from my Windows Update):
"Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 3 for x64-based Systems (KB2721691)
Installation date: 25/08/2012 2:13 PM
Installation status: Successful
Update type: Important
A security issue has been identified in Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) that could allow an attacker to compromise your Windows-based system and gain control over it. You can help protect your computer by installing this update from Microsoft. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer. Once you have installed this item, it cannot be removed."
My question is, I have Vista Home Premium SP2, 64-bit, and I'm wondering about the Service Pack 3 mention in the update. Also, can Vista SP2 be upgraded to SP3? It doesn't seem so because from the information I've gathered on the internet, there is no SP3 in Vista. I guess my question is should I have installed this item on my computer? Weirdly, Secunia had alerted me that the same xml Core Svcs needed updating yesterday, and after several hours, it finally did update for me. Also, since my computer is Vista SP2, is this OS coming to an end, or can I use my computer indefinitely? I actually have liked Vista quite a lot.
Thank you, Dianne
