Last MS Update... Somewhat OT.

So, I thought I'd share a somewhat database related issue with you all, especially if you are running Oracle on Win servers. It seems that the last WIN XP update that I downloaded (today) did something to my ability to mount network drives. I spent almost 2 hours trying to figure out why my network drive would no longer attach to my box. As a last gasp I did a system restore and this fixed things. I had not done anything to the box, so I'm pretty sure it was the last update.

Anyway, if you have problems with shares on your XP database servers or your personal PC's this may be why. I'd be interested if anyone else has had this problem...
