    Thanks Freudi. I guess the bashing they took over this patch actually
    worked at getting them to rework this patch.

    Thank you Ottmar, I have read the blog from Stephen Toulouse and have 1 final
    question. If you have applied the reg key fix and are no longer experiencing
    problems. Is there no action required. Or are you better removing your reg
    key fix and uninstalling the old ms06-015. Then reapplying the new fix via
    AU? Thanks JD76.

    I read the article about new update, and see that they would address HP
    Share to web and Nvidia issues....
    I have none of these on my computer, and yet have problems after
    KB908531 update.

    My XP prof sp2 does this:
    When you rightclick anything it would sometime open a menu ok, but most
    of the times:
    show hourglass for a minute, then it disappears and nothing opens...
    If you look in task manager - at the same time it happens Verclsid.exe
    opens.

    I found two solutions that make it go away:
    1 - remove KB908531
    2 - keep it and rename Verclsid.exe to Verclsid.old in hope that new
    update coming out on april 25th will fix it...
    I did send my comments on the article to microsoft, as their article
    mentions only computers with share to web and nvidia drivers. But I
    don't know how good they are checking those comments.

    Do you know the sure way to contact microsoft about bugs???

  9. The bashing in the newsgroups here? Not really. I'm sure not
    having been the only one to had contact with MSRC since at
    least Saturday. They seemed to have been somewhat impressed
    by the amount of downloads of f.i. "my fix", which has been
    downloaded more than 3.000 times in the meantime.

    Anyway, it's good to see the giant moving.

    Bye,
    Freudi

  10. Nope. The "updated update" will include the exact same fix for
    HP's (outdated) Share-To-Web software, which has been described
    in the KB article and been made available for download by Kelly
    as VBS file and me as a ZIP file. Additional a registry fix for
    outdated Nvidia video card drivers.

    Anyway, AutoUpdate and the Windows/Microsoft Update site will
    check, if the machine is in trouble and install the "updated
    update" if they feel, the machine may be.

    HTH,
    Freudi

    Hello:

    I just read your post. Are you saying that the new update coming out April
    25th is going to have a fix for the Nvidia Video Cards or are you saying you
    have a fix for them.

    I have one of those cards that do not have drivers above 6.14.10.5673 and it
    is no longer supported. It is my secondary emergency machine and would hate
    to have to purchase a new video card just for stand by machine.

    Thanks

  12. Just curious: Which video card model exactly?

    About my video card Nvidia gave me a link to an older driver. My card has
    not been supported in a while. I currently have the drivers installed that
    came with XP.

    If I remember when I tried to install the drivers that Nvidia Supplied I got
    notice that my current drivers were newer.

    My video card is "Nvidia TNT2 Model 64".

    This is not a daily use machine so I will just wait for the update to come
    down on April 25th before updateing this machine. I rarely goes on the net
    mostly a product test machine prior to putting product on my main machine.

    Thanks Freudi I will leave as is and see if anything changes. I know this is
    probably a silly question but not being too proficient on the internals of a
    pc. how do I know what video card drivers I have installed? I have a sony
    vaio laptop but not too sure on how to check. I know that I have a HP
    photosmart 7550 printer and wish I had never installed it as it has always
    given me trouble with some driver or other.

    Thanks in advance JD76.

    Revise my Video Drivers:

    I just did some more research and found that the Nvidia Drivers for my card
    were updated last April and are 71.89 which means I have no issues.

    I think I was confused because I have the Microsoft Drivers installed right
    now and they use different Version Numberes. All that aside I was at a
    friends house today and he had installed the update and has the exact same
    video card with the same Windows XP default drivers installed. No issues on
    the machine.

    So it looks like I am good to go.

    I think when I said the drivers were newer from Microsoft than Nvidia I must
    have been remembering when I had 2003 Server Trial installed.

    I'm not Freudi, but you can either look in the Adapter section of the
    Display applet (under Settings>Advanced) or expand the Display category
    in Device Manager (System applet). Since you have a laptop, you will be
    using the proprietary drivers by Sony and you should leave them that
    way. Laptops have proprietary hardware so you should always get drivers
    from the laptop mftr. for your specific model laptop.

    I continue to have IE6 problems on my Sony Vaio laptop following the MS
    security update debacle. I have no HP stuff as far as I'm aware.

    I've followed advice from various MVPs and installed Kelly's solution
    but still have the IE6 problem and still my System Restore utility is
    missing. I've tried to find it in Safe Mode too.

    The error message I repeatedly get when on-line through AOL and trying
    to open pages or use links is:

    "DDE Server Window:rstrui.exe - Bad Image
    The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\mshtml.DLL is not a valid
    windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

    Any further assistance gratefully received.

    Regards,

    David.

    This is an interesting report, thank you.

    This might be caused by another problematic shell extension (shell
    extensions are for example the things that add themselves to your
    right-click menu). Please download "ShellExView" from
    http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html and run it. Note down all the
    listed items that are *not* by Microsoft and then list them here in a
    follow-up to this post.
