I have a yellow Shield on my laptop today [Office 2003 sp2]

And since this is my laptop, and I’m on the road, I’m probably going to say “wait” and install later.

 Office 2003 Service Pack 2 provides the latest updates to Microsoft Office 2003.


Now I should ‘fess up …and fix up…the fact that I was running … oh sorry Dana…. Local admin again because I was needing to adjust network connections so Steve and I could share my Aircard connection on the road.  And the RunAs just wasn’t working.  We wonder if it was because I have a blank admin passoword.  Now why would I do that you say?  For one…. I put this laptop in my backpack and it goes with me everywhere so I ensure I have physical security of it, secondly a blank admin password means that the Admin account cannot be accessed over the Network.


So Dana… I’m flipping myself back to restricted user since today is registration day at the Summit.

2 Thoughts on “I have a yellow Shield on my laptop today [Office 2003 sp2]

  1. a ton of office sp2 updates came out yesterday.

    there’s one for office proper, plus separate sp2 updates for stuff like onenote and visio.

    ~150 mb in size all together.

    install was very smooth tho, and fairly quick after download.

    both my laptop and desktop have been rock solid since installing yesterday, too.

  2. So no password is better than a strong password? Nice.
