    In typical MS fashion, not long after the issue of a patch, it's been
    updated again.......

    July 23, 2003 MS03-029
    Flaw in Windows Function Could Allow Denial of Service (823803)

    http://www.microsoft.com/security/security_bulletins/ms03-029.asp
    This bulletin was originally issued on July 23, 2003. It has been
    reissued in conjunction with a revision to the update that corrects an
    issue involving computers running Remote Access Services (RAS) on the
    affected products......

    ....... have the Remote Access Service (RAS) enabled on them. This causes
    RAS to fail when the system is rebooted after applying the patch.

    # V1.0 (July 23, 2003): Bulletin Created.
    # V1.1 (July 29, 2003): Updated to provide details of problem when patch
    is installed on systems running RAS Service.
    # V2.0 (August 13, 2003): Updated to reflect the release of updated
    patches to correct problems on computers running RAS.

    So it's back to what happened to my PC while the patch was waiting on a
    fix, and what about the rest of the patches.

    As normal best thing for MS patches is wait a few days and visit
    technical discussion boards / bug track lists before applying. Then
    again a major virus / worm incident has to rely on the patch working
    first time. Hence the development of the MS Trustworthy Computing
    platform it's about 18 months old and going strong....... at something I
    am sure.
