Microsoft ceases development for 2003

If I remember correctly, Microsoft shut down development for a month in 2002 to address security issues.

It's pretty clear they should have shut down development for at least a year, not a month. Here I am trying to fix my dad's W2K box that got W32.Blaster.

I've run the removal tool, but now I can't install the MS patch because I don't have SP2 installed. My attempts to download it have so far failed, both IE and Mozilla claim the download has completed before it has. He probably has other viruses on this computer too.

I hate Windows.
