Vic,

  If you type it instead of clicking on it, will that protect you, even
though you are typing exactly what the URL is?

Bob,

Even url names are not 100% fail-proof nowadays and can be spoofed. The
best is type in an URL by hand in your browser - especially if you are
not sure of the origin of the mail / message.

Hi Lisa,
I'd say don't buy it because it is not taking you to a Microsoft web
site. The address should say Microsoft.

There is a patch by this name, which you can get here.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;828035

It could be that someone is using this legit patch to suck people in.

Never, never get a patch from anywhere, but Microsoft.

If there is something you are not sure of do searches on it instead. Bob
