Office XP SP3 just came out a few days ago. Among the things it fixes is a security hole in outlook that allows an attacker to take over your PC when you have the Outlook homepage open.

The problem with the SP though is a feature that has been added to help protect address books from virii. This feature has broken various anti-spam software. This good news is that many of the software manufacturers said that they would have a patch out in a week to fix the problem.

So pick up servicepack 3 and any other Office updates you need by going to Just check with the company that made your spam filter software first.
