    I wrote a super-small (30k), super-quick (instantaneous),
    super-simple (chimpanzee approved), totally safe automatic
    vulnerability fixing utility to deal totally with this Window
    XP mess: XPdite

    This is not, of course, a replacement for installing XP's
    Service Pack 1, but for all of those people for whom SP1 is
    impractical, "XPdite" gives anyone a super-quick and easy
    means for patching the system immediately....

    This little 30k app *contains* the Service Pack 1 replacement
    file with which it replaces the pre-SP1 file, renaming the
    original file ".bak". It does the right thing pre and post SP1
    and also on non-XP systems so that ANYONE can run it at any
    time "just to be sure".

    As Steve says, Microsoft has fixed this problem--- the fix is included
    in SP1, along with tons of other stuff. But if you're waiting to see
    whether SP1 is worth installing as a whole, Steve's XPdite lets you
    address just this particular problem now, without having to install the
    full Service Pack.

    As is usual with much of Steve's stuff, he's offering this file for
    free, as a service to the computing community.
