  2. I got errors about missing ActiveX components on my WinXP SP1 box after the
    KB896688 patch, after uninstalling the patch, errors are gone.

    Well after 2 hours of removing updates and adding them one at a time, then
    downloading KB896688 from and installing it I get the
    same issue as before. I wish this did the trick for me as well. =(

    No, the KB is correct and does not need to be recalled. The reason anyone
    had problems with IE are simple. You failed to follow instructions. One of
    the updates was NOT to applied if certain conditions were not already met.

    ------------------- This one is now separated due to other issues described
    in the MS bulletin: (do not "blindly" install this update) -
    Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer
    [$$$] -------------------------

    If you had blindly installed this particular update, the articel clearly
    states that under certain specifc conditions (clearly spelled out),
    installing htis update would wipe out all previous HotFixes (does not affect
    previous roll-ups).
    Yes, all. I read it, did a "Belarc" inventory, and, then after confirmong
    my own particular setup was coherent, I then applied this update.

    Installed KB896688 and then went back to windows update and he
    complained about the fact I didn't have the right activex control.
    Every program that uses an activex control in IE didn't work anymore.
    Uninstalled it and everything works again.

  8. You know.... I may have an 'issue' here... albeit not caused by the KB896688
    update, because I've not installed it yet, but I do have the KB902400 update

    I'm working with Virtual Server on another system, and last night I
    attempted to access the Virtual Server Admin Console from this client. When
    putting a running session into remote control mode, the website is supposed
    to install an ActiveX control to support that functionality. But the ActiveX
    control would not even initiate the installation!

    I'm going to uninstall the KB902400 update from this system and see if
    that's related. Stay tuned.

  10. Yes.. I did... read it as it was posted.

    I doubt, though, that there will be a lot of systems hit by group membership
    changes. There are obviously other things at work than just that glitch,
    though, in the long run, I suspect (based on the other info from MS) that a
    lot of these issues will be ultimately tracked back to somebody mucking with
    default system access permissions.

    In my case, though, I've still not sorted out the actual cause, though I'll
    be looking into it over the weekend. I highly doubt it's a permissions
    issue, as I've not mucked with anything configured on my own system.

  11. Hi Lawrence,

    Have you considered open up a support case with Microsoft for
    this issue?

  12. Actually, it hadn't gotten to the point of being motivated enough to
    actually pick up a telephone... (I hate telephones!)

    As it turns out, the 'fixes' from KB909444 resolved the issue.

    I did this pursuant to applying KB896688 and KB902400 (in that order) to a
    virgin XP SP2 VM environment, and was not able to reproduce my VS2005/VMRC
    error -- this led me to believe that it /was/ something on my system
    contributing to the malfunction.

    While the VMRC wasn't listed in the KB article, and the permissions appeared
    to be okay on my system, I applied the fixes via the command line
    instructions, anyway. Reinstalled KB902400 (I had previously installed
    KB896688 after tracing the problem to KB902400), and it's all working
    perfectly now.

    My advice now, to anybody experiencing issues with KB902400, even if the
    cause is not yet documented in KB909444, would be to reapply the security
    permissions to the %windir%\registration folder.
