    It means you should carry your butt over to windows update and get some
    patches.

    Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 (SP2) provides the latest updates to the
    Windows 2000 family of operating systems. These updates are a collection
    of fixes in the following areas: application compatibility, operating
    system reliability, security, and setup. Windows 2000 SP2 includes the
    updates contained in Windows 2000 Service Pack 1 (SP1). Windows 2000 SP2
    is not considered a required upgrade.

    Build is the version number when the CD was pressed, normally the RTM
    (release to manufacture). For example in all the years NT4 was out every

    CD I installed from always had Build 1381, even though there were
    patches, Service Packs I never saw an MS/OEM CD with any updates past
    that. Unlike NT4 win 2000 did come out with CDs including service pack
    updates built in, the last one I saw from a year ago included SP3.

    It means you have the Final build of Windows 2000, and it already has
    Service Pack 2 installed.

    Oall you need to do is install Service Pack 4 and any remaining hot fixes to
    be right up to date.

    Would you rather have slower, or would you rather have a system
    with well known exploits on the net for anyone (who wants to) to

    The "Build 2195" means that it was the official, for-release version
    of Win2K, not a beta or candidate version.

    "Service Pack 2" means that your machine is "Bend over, Ethyl,
    Incoming!"

    IOW - Download the network install for SP4, install it, then pop
    over to Windows Update and grab the criticals. You can start at
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows to get it.

    Oh - also, you need SP1 for your IE6. Start at
    http://www.microsoft.com/ie to get THAT too.

    And, you might as well either go get the DX9.0b Redistribution file
    (start at http://www.microsoft.com/directx ) or decide to disable the update
    to that.

    On all three, that link will take you to where you can order the CD
    if you don't want to wait for the update to download.

    After that, pop over to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and grab
    the critical updates.

    I'd also get the "Root Certificate Update" while you're at it, which
    is a Windows update, but not a critical one.

    (There's a few others - but when in doubt, on the non-critical ones,
    don't get them.)

    That should keep you busy for a few hours .. <B-)

    "HamMan"
    Which blaster patch? The first one? Or the one that actually
    works?

    Also, how about the "Popup Windows run in Local Machine zone"
    exploit hole? The buffer overflow holes? The root certificate updates?
    The blah blah blah?

    Besides, if raw speed was important, you'd not be running XP.

    Build 2195, the 2195th time they compiled the code. NT 4 was, I think,
    build 1379. windows 2000 was originally going to be NT 5 before the
    marketing department got involved.

    service pack 2 means that you've service pack 2 installed, shouldn;t be
    a big problem if you kept current with the critical security patches.
