For those of you still using Win 2K (and there are a lot of you) you have probably installed or at least been alerted to Microsoft’s release in late June of SP4. Despite Microsoft’s officially ending non-paid support at the end of June numerous complaints about SP4 have apparently encouraged them to release a new version of it, which will hopefully resolve problems “ranging from incompatibility with third-party security applications to network-printing issues.”
So, if you’ve got Win 2K and haven’t installed SP4, you’re advised to wait until it’s rereleased. And if you have, you probably will want to reinstall with the new one. For more check out eWeek’s coverage of the issue and watch WindowsUpdate.com.
