OT: RE: download.microsoft.com problem

I think you need to read a little more carefully and
also see

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q262631

Which is linked to the article you mention.

The only real downside is that you can't change the "level-1" list
at all unless you use Outlook 2K in and Exchange server environment,
with your mail delivered to an Exchange mailbox, then it can be 
changed by and admin.

IMHO all the file extensions that I see on the "Level-1" list
belong there anyway.  If you need to e-mail one of those files
for some reason (ie, sharing development code or whatever), just
zip it and then send it....

Now back to more operational content......?

Don't know the history of this input but MS is in the process of an auto
security update for ALL XP machines worldwide. Might have something to
do with this behavior.

On a side note, it kills ALL E-mail attachments (MS files et al) and
significant web content. Security vulnerability in XP. As I told the MS
agent I talked to, kind of makes Windows useless. :)
