Well, as you are using a beta version of a version of R released in June 2004, you certainly should upgrade. (Indeed the R posting guide asked you to do so before posting the first time.)

You should probably install R-patched from

or your nearest CRAN mirror (we have no idea where you are). You install that the same way you installed the current version: double clicking on the installer .exe should be all that is needed.
