Just a small warning to those about to install XP

I've just installed the SR1 version of XP Home and while trying to download the Blaster patch caught five lots of the Lovsan worm - not all at once, but on each of the five times I tried to download the patch.

I had the Outpost firewall and AVG installed and AVG reacted well each time.

Have got the patch now, and a clean machine so there are no worries, however I thought it worth saying to others that there is life after Lovsan, even if it is very irritating.
