    Hi,
    Just run Shavlik and found a missing patch on my pc - windows Internet Printing Service KB953155 - update Oct 2008.
    I am a home user windows xp sp2 and would like to know if I should install this patch. I don't recall unchecking the box not to download and install any of the patches from microsoft at that time.
    Any advice appreciated. Thanks

    I always install ALL updates from Microsoft and I don't have this update either (I'm using Windows XP Home SP3), so I assume that this update is included in another one that was offered by Automatic Updates or by Microsoft Update.
    I guess it won't hurt to install this update, but it probably won't add anything new.

    Thanks Hans but when I do a Microsoft and Securia check for updates this patch does not show as missing on my pc. Windows Secrets newsletter advised not to install sp3 just yet (Sept 2008), and I am waiting for the go ahead.

    Microsoft Update and Secunia don't tell me that this patch is missing either. Since they don't, it's probably not necessary to install it - I'd give it a miss.

    Windows XP SP3 has been out for more than a year now; it has been installed on my home PC and on hundreds of PCs at the place where I work without any problems.
