Hi!

I downloaded a microsoft patch for a vulnerability yesterday and was fine.

Later I decided to restore my computer to the day before's data.

Checked that the patch was gone from add/remove and it was.

Also rescanned and yes, vulnerabiity showed was back.

I want to reload the same patch now, and there is one entry showing from the install prior to system restore, which I'm not sure if is ok to remove or just leave alone.

the file is showing that it's in c:\windows\prefetch

should i remove that entry, before I install the patch again?

thanks,
tapero

Assuming that you have Office 2003 installed, I would not worry about that file. It needs to be installed by Office 2003 users.

If a file is on your system and any program attempts to install that same file, in the same place...the old file is just overwritten.
