Over the past few days I have been experiencing a constant Norton Anti-virus blocking of the following intrusions...
  • MS ASNI Integer Overflow TCP
  • MS RPC LSASS DS Oversized Request (TCP)
I have looked these up on the google search engine and have found out that my computer needs updating. The only problem is I'm not really sure how I'm suppose to update it or where I'm suppose to find the right update for my specific PC computer. Help ASAP would be greatly appreciated.

click on the link below while using the IE browser. Click on the "express"
button and let windows scan your computer for updates. Install all of them.

I suspect you may be missing other updates for your programs. Get the Windows updates first and then post back.

Do you have SP2 installed? If not, you should read the info in the link below.

Make sure your computer is malware free before installing SP2

Not sure of what version of Windows you have. The link you posted is not working for me, but the update mentioned is not needed in XP2. I edited my original post yesterday and you may not of seen it. Check your version of Windows and post back.

To determine which version of Microsoft Windows you are running:

1.
On the taskbar at the bottom of your screen, click Start, and then click Run.

2.
In the Run dialog box, type: winver

3.
Click OK.
A dialog box displays the version that you are running.

Since you have Windows XP2, your computer is not vulnerable to the exploit that Norton is flagging. Are you still getting the notices from Norton after doing the updates? To play it safe, post a Hijack This log in the appropriate forum by following the directions in the link below. Be sure to point to this topic for the Hijack This team to review.

It seems I haven't completely updated my Windows yet since I went back to the Windows update page and it gave me a total of 13 new updates. Hopefully one of these updates is the key to my problem.

Today is patch Tuesday for Windows. That may be what the updates are. Here is a link to an article about what is getting patched. Second Tuesday of each month is patch Tuesday.
