Windows XP: Pre SP2 WGA Message

When we were reinstalling the factory image on a Toshiba S1 whose hard disk failed, we ran updates from the update site before SP2.

It was just one of those days! :D

Here is the message we received from the new WGA tool just before we started up the SP2 routine:

"This version of Windows XP is no longer secure."
The screen shot was taken after the SP2 routine was started to show a bit of the irony. ;)

For those who haven't service packed XP yet, they probably are not running updates from the Microsoft site in the first place. Thus, they will never see that message!

I do hope that all users have at least configured automatic updates by now!
