    The recent Sasser scare prompted me to read up more on the latest viruses as noted by Norton SARC. I did some more digging around on TechTv's website and eventually found the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) 1.2 Q&A which is more robust than the Windows Updater and Microsoft Office Updater Tools. THE MBSA detected more vulnerabilites than the WU and MOU detected. MBSA V1.2 scans for security misconfigurations in Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 4.0, 5.0, and 6.0, Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 5.01+, Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 and 2000, and Microsoft Office 2000, XP, and 2003. I attached a screenshot of the results I got from using MBSA during the process of patching the security risks.

    OK, Mac users, et al.....no gloating allowed

    Thanks! I don't know what's wrong with my computer (can't rid of ads embedded on my computer), but this is a good place to look.

    Thanks OP. MBSA is a great tool.

    To the last poster asking about popups, do yourself a favor and get ad-aware from lavasoftusa.com. Freeware, targets the spyware that you are running in the background - which then frees up system resources which is all around good.

    Don't bother with the pro or other pay options. The freeware is all you need to clean those ads out.

    Another great spy removal tool and my personal favorite is Spybot Search and Destroy v1.2.

    Guy's cannot post links now, but Google search eeye and grc (Gibson Research).

    Both ad aware and s&d in use, MBSA in use, Zonealarm, Dcombulator(easy way of toggling DCOM, Universal Plug and play manually disabled), Trend Micro PCcillin kept updated. Don't do e-commerce without being aware of this stuff.
