I can't see how it can since the WMF file would simply act as a dropper
for further malicious code.

If you have already been compromised, then you shouldn't be worried
about the WMF file any more, but whatever it has installed onto the
machine.

Mark Handy

I am sorry for introducing another variable into this discussion.
However, can someone kindly tell me if the patch fixes computers, which
are already compromised by the WMF file?

If not, can someone please point me to the right direction for a fix for
that is already thrashed !!!

Oh yeah!! Happy New Year...

Just for the record, I run ME still on one of my computers and have
never really had a problem with it.  Also, XP home for some people I
help, no problems.  Perhaps its the administrators??  ;)
