    Hi my friend :)
    If i may just add that this update ONLY should be used if you are experiencing difficulty's. if you are not severely affected by this problem, Microsoft recommend that you wait for the next Windows XP service pack that contains this hot-fix.
    Further info regarding this hot fix can be found here

    Hi nadirah :)
    The reason you are not being offered this update is because it is not critical and only will effect computers in certain situation's. Hope that clarifies things for you

    Best regards
