    I've heard a rumor that only people on a network need to apply 811493. I
    have an ethernet LAN -- desktop to laptop. That's it. Do I need the patch?
    Using XP Home.

  2. Rumors are only that --- rumors.

    If you go to Microsoft support, you would find that they recommend applying
    811493 for XP Home as well as XP Pro, 2000, and NT.

    Also, if you read thru the various Microsoft notes, you will find NOTHING
    that says that only "people on a network" need to apply it.

    Now, whoever it is that you are listening to, probably was indicating the
    fact that after 811493 was initially relewase, there were reports that
    applying 811493 cause some network related slowdowns. So Microsoft had to
    gi back, figure outr what had happened, and then re-release 811493.
