Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Last year we upgraded a Sony desktop to XP SP3. Pretty much a nightmare. MS, Trend Micro, and Qwest all thought it was someone else's problem. We could not access the Internet. Finally, one of those support people walked us through reverting back to SP2. The machine is a dog now and has weird issues.
Now, I have a new Acer veriton L460 which insists it needs XP Pro SP3. Trend's scans are telling me I have critical updates that must be done for vulnerability issues. Will SP3 cover all of these issues? Will I be dead in the water if I do upgrade to SP3? Thanks
Here are a few:
Vulnerability in ASP.NET Could Allow Information Disclosure
Vulnerability in DHCP Client Service Could Allow Remote Code Execution
Vulnerability in DNS Resolution Could Allow Remote Code Execution (920683)
Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows Hyperlink Object Library Could Allow Remote Code Execution (920670)
If you had many problems, it's not necessary, as long as your firewall / anti-virus is configured correctly.
