Question Exploit WMF Virus

I had this, & deleted it from my programmes, but it left behind hidden components, which give me lots of pop-ups, in spite of having AdAware, so, as advised by members, I did both search & run,...nothing.
Probably sounds a silly question, should I do a M/Soft update?, if so, a general one, or, as I've heard they've just brought out a patch, go directly to that one.
I'm a bit cautious as usual, they usually say to d/load, then cover themselves, they say, "don't d/load if you feel it would be unsafe to do so,...what's all that about?

That is usually just to cover there own tracks in case something bad happenes when you download the software.

If it's a registered site and a well known company it's usually pretty safe to download plus if you have a virus detector it will normally scan it first.
