    HI guys.

    Just some info re MS Update/Security offer when your discs arrive.

    I ordered just on 2 weeks ago and it arrived couple days ago, pretty quick. :D

    HOWEVER, :eek: [LOL, ain't there always] those of you who use Wormguard are in for a pretty funny treat.

    It ALERTS on the Main Updates CD, stating you tried to run a file that is not allowed. [Note: I have vbs and hta entered in the Blocked Editor's List, so it may have tried to run one of them in the Auto run.

    Upon browsing, it contains updates to Feb 2004 pre and after SP1.

    The other disc, when inserted, automatically started to 'unpack' a program without any warning at all and wanted to install eTrust's EZ ARMOUR LE AV and firewall which I just cancelled out of. :mad:

    Just a "heads up" if you do get it and wonder what the heck is happening if running WG with vbs or hta listed in blocked. :doubt:

    Cheers, TAS.

    Oh well then I am glad I waited, TAS! Get to let all you early birds test the CD first. :D :D :D

    Thanks for the heads-up Tassie!

    I ordered mine weeks ago, haven't seen a thing, went and reordered. Maybe I will have better luck this time. On the order site they stated that they were back ordered. :(

    Update:

    I uninstalled WG's Protection and re-ran to see what I got.

    First pic is GUI of Security Advice. :D

    Firewall/AutoUpdate/etc. advice.

    Naturally, I have other options in place to those shown in my case. :D

    TAS.
