    Unknown Download (Windows XP Pro Build 2600)

    I have just installed Microsoft's Windows XP Security Update, March 4, 2002 (Java Applet Can Redirect Browser Traffic) <img src=/S/angel.gif border=0 alt=angel width=15 height=21>

    After restarting and reconnecting to the Internet my computer proceeded to download something without my asking for it, or getting any message to say what was going on. I can only relate it to the above mentioned Security Update. <img src=/S/bummer.gif border=0 alt=bummer width=15 height=15>

    Following the unidentified download I did a search of my hard disk and found the new/modified files shown in the attached "spurious download.gif".

    Anyone got any ideas as to what is going on?

    Have you any sort of firewall operating?

    I have ZoneAlarm Pro v3.0.33 as my fireway.

    Also, here is the attachment which seemed to get lost along the way.
