    I've tried going to Microsoft update and i don't see any available download.
    I turn on Automatic Update and does not get the update.
    Contacted HP support and provided support did not help at all.

    I think that All HP computer should receive the new update revision.

    I have a HP computer with HP software and I'm affected.

    Posted earlier this week in the MS Security Response Center (MSRC) blog:

    "When the [revised 908531] update is re-released, it's going to be very much
    targeted to people who are having the problem, or people who have not
    installed MS06-015 yet. That means if you have already installed MS06-015
    and are not having the problem, there's no action here for you. Windows
    Update, Microsoft Update, and Automatic Update will have detection logic
    built into them to only offer the revised update (which essentially includes
    the reg key fix) to those customers who either don't have MS06-015 or are
    having the problem."

    If Automatic Updates did not offer you the revised version of 908531, the
    above-referenced detection logic didn't determine that your machine needed

    If you'd like to see if the revised version would resolve your problems,
    uninstall "Security Update for Windows XP (KB908531)" via Add/Remove
    Programs and reboot. Once you've done so, Automatic Updates should offer
    you the revised version, as would Windows Update website.

    Let us know how you make out.

    URG!! Here we go again!

    I have a valid license of Windows XP Pro on my 2.5 year old COmpaq business
    Notebook EVO N620c, with sticker and all. Same problem as last time.
    Fails to install. Yes DirectX is enabled and fully open, no AV, or firewalls.
    Same thing.

    So how long with the "Microsoft Bug denial" phase be, and how many of us
    will have to be insulted by some MS employee that "can't move Mount Fuji".

    Can we skil MS employees insulting paying customers and have the patch file
    like last time. Please feel free to email me at my contact email address.
    I will do whatever you want. Send a picture of the bottom of the notebook
    with label, receipts, whatever. But this is gett so annoying.

    Linux is looking better every day..

    I did uninstall KB908531 before posting this and then let the automatic
    update download/install it but still have the issues here's the registry:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Windows XP\SP3\KB908531

    I think that KB908531 should have v2 next to it if it's a revised version?

  5. Nope, not for the registry entry you're posting, but have a look for
    the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Cached

    If you can find _all_ of the following values in there, KB908531v2 is
    installed on your machine:

    {750FDF0E-2A26-11D1-A3EA-080036587F03} {000214E8-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} 0x401
    {1e9b04fb-f9e5-4718-997b-b8da88302a47} {000214e8-0000-0000-c000-000000000046} 0x401
    {1e9b04fb-f9e5-4718-997b-b8da88302a48} {000214e8-0000-0000-c000-000000000046} 0x401
    {1cdb2949-8f65-4355-8456-263e7c208a5d} {000214e6-0000-0000-c000-000000000046} 0x401
    {A4DF5659-0801-4A60-9607-1C48695EFDA9} {000214E6-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} 0x401

    In case you still have problems after applying KB908531v2, you may want
    to try ShellExView to determine,
    which shell extensions causes the problems in conjunction with KB908531
    you're seeing.
