    Microsoft has released an out-of-cycle patch to fix a major security vulnerability in all current versions of Windows that can allow a remote attacker complete control over a system.

    That is up to the attacker. They pretty much gain full control of your PC.

    Apparently I got the update last night. So far no audio issues, but I'm not running an Eee.

    Somehow PCIe was at x1. Reinstalled graphicsdriver and all is fine again 90+fps

    There! Fixed that nasty little typo for you... :)

    On another note, how embarrassing is it for Microsoft to STILL have security issues related to RPC? One would have thought they'd finally locked this down after the Blaster (and, I believe, Sasser) worm ravaging the Windows platform. I guess not...
