    see <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/topics/Nimda.asp>http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec...pics/Nimda.asp</A>

    The MS01-020 patch mentioned in that article has now been superseded by the MS01-027 patch -- <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS01-027.asp>http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...in/MS01-027.asp</A>. The MS01-027 patch requires 5.01 SP2 - meaning SP2 does not contain the fix, as the article suggests.

    If you try running the patch on IE 5.5 SP2, it tells you you need SP1. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> I'm fairly confident that MS rolled the patch into SP2, which was released about 5 months after the patch.

    thanks for the info. i guess if I had tried to install it, the question would have been a DUH!!! but I didn't want to take the chance of crashing ie with the patch. thanks again sorry to waste your time!!!!
