    I installed SP2 yesterday in XP Home Edition. I configured WU so that it
    would NOT run automatically, and I disabled Windows Firewall because I use
    Norton Personal Firewall. After booting up this morning, NPF gave me a
    warning that WU was trying to access confidential credit card information on
    my machine. What's up with that?

    You can never be sure, of course, but Windows Sec Center
    would try to find the status of your personal firewall
    and, at the same time, your personal firewall could
    understand this as WSC is tampering your bank details.

    Tell WSC you have your own firewall and you don't want it
    peeping anymore.
