As a follow up to my original problem of excessive packets sent in the local area connection status screen.................checking an article on the Microsoft knowledge base site (article #317751), I noticed they called out two dll files and stated to make sure the file version attributes were 5.1.2600.28 or later. Checking my file version, I noticed mine are 5.1.2600.2180. Which one of these are the latest file........ .28 or .2180? Every site I check for downloading dll files have the .2180 file. If this is the earlier file version, where can one get the .28 file? I guess my other question would be.....is there some convention as to what the version numbers mean? ( I have one of these files in my I386 folder that is a 5.1.2600.1106 file version with a comment in parentheses mentioning xpsp1. I'm wondering if the last number group starts with 1 then it's SP1 and if it starts with 2 then it's SP2....... or is this just a coincidence?)
I just hate the unknown..........if you dig deep enough there's always a reason for things.
Can anyone clear up my confusion?
