MS to Reissue W2k SP4 - Rollup patch problems for customers

* Microsoft Will Reissue W2K SP4

Redmond is going to roll out a new version of SP4. Quite a bit of problems are dogging users who have installed the SP4 update rollup that was released late June instead of SP5. A bunch of problems with third-party security apps and stuff like network-printing issues have surfaced.

As you all know, Redmond ended mainstream support for W2K client and server on June 30.On their website they said: "We plan to reissue Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 soon. Several hotfixes will be integrated into the new version of Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4," They also mentioned that the problems with the Rollup are "isolated" and "affect few customers."
