How to update your computer with the JPEG processing (GDI+) security update
Published: September 14, 2004 | Updated: September 21, 2005
The GDI+ security update for September 2004 addresses a security issue in JPEG processing technology. This issue affects software that supports this image format, including some versions of Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office. If you have either software installed on your computer, you should install the related update. Depending on the software you are using, you may need to install multiple updates from multiple locations.
To track your progress, print a printer-friendly version of this page, or add this page to your browser Favorites or bookmarks so that you may return to it easily to complete all of the steps.
Important: Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) is not affected by the GDI+ issue, and installing Windows XP SP2 eliminates the GDI+ issue in affected Microsoft developer tools and imaging software. However, Windows XP SP2 users may have other Microsoft software installed that requires updating. If you use Windows XP SP2 and Microsoft Office, please visit the Office Update Web site to scan your computer for needed updates.
