PLEASE DO NOT FORWARD THIS LETTER BEYOND YOUR MAILBOX.
This information is confidential.

Microsoft would like to invite you to participate in the Windows
Security
Update beta program. Microsoft is considering developing a CD that will
provide the critical security updates found on the Windows Update
website
for computers running Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows ME
(Millennium Edition). This security update CD will be of special benefit
to
customers with slow internet connections and for those customers who
typically do not visit the Microsoft website to download updates for
their
computers.

For preliminary testing, we would like to ensure that the older
machines,
specifically those running Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition &
Windows
ME (Millennium Edition) installed, will be compatible with all of the
critical security updates included on the CD. To accomplish this, we
would
appreciate your assistance in participating in our one time beta
program.

Our goal is to have a well targeted group of testers willing to actively
participate and provide useful feedback to our development team. Your
feedback will be critical to the success of our product.

If you are selected as a technical beta tester, you may be required to:
. Participate in private beta newsgroups
. Submit bug reports online
. Complete periodic surveys hosted on BetaPlace to obtain your
input on
various technical issues

Before you continue, it is important to understand that the beta release
of
any product will not display the stability of a shipped Microsoft
product.
You may encounter problems with this beta CD that could possibly result
in a
loss or destruction of data. This release is not appropriate for
production
use, and we suggest that you back up your existing data before you
install
and run this software.

If you are interested in participating, please use this special guest
