There were several important Windows updates in the past couple months - here's one of the latest:

MS08-054: Vulnerability in Windows Media Player could allow remote code execution

       Date last published: September 15, 2008

This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in Windows Media Player that could allow remote code execution when a specially crafted audio file is streamed from a Windows Media server. If a user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

You can also read the pages from Microsoft for their security updates for Sept 2008, and for August 2008
