    Re: Microsoft Security Bulletin Summary for February 2006

    Just a note on the above post revised update (Microsoft Security Bulletin MS05-054). Users who installed the update when it was first released (Dec. 13, 2005) do NOT need to reinstall the update. Revision is on the bulletin only. Not with the installer or update file. If you haven't install the update, visit Microsoft Update website to help protect the system.
