If having problems after update 908531 or having these problems

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by Maurice N ~ MVP, Apr 16, 2006.

  1. Many problem reports have been reported following application of security update 908531, released on April 11.

    IF you are having problems listed below, or somewhat similar problems:

    . Unable to access special folders like "My Documents" or "My Pictures".
    . Microsoft Office applications may stop responding when you attempt to save or open Office files in the "My Documents" folder.
    . Office files in the "My Documents" folder are not able to open in Microsoft Office.
    . Opening a file through an application's File / Open menu causes the program to stop responding .
    . Typing an address into Internet Explorer's address bar has no effect.
    . Right-clicking on a file and selecting Send To has no effect.
    . Clicking on the plus (+) sign beside a folder in Windows Explorer has no effect.
    . Some third-party applications stop responding when opening or saving data in the "My Documents" folder.


    See my post at Aumha.net for fix suggestions.

    Hi, Maurice. Hope you don't mind me adding this bit:

    If the manual fix seems daunting, MVP Kelly Theriot has once again
    worked her magic and written an automated fix for the HP problem. You
    can get it here:

  3. I just ran Kelly's script and it cured my 'copy' proble. Thanks. I was
    nervous about the registry editing myself.

    This great update managed to screw the right click menu completely. No more
    "encryption" selection there created by Pointsec ME.

    Any fix to be expected?

    From information I saw this morning, HP and Nvidia have updated drivers
    to address the problems with their software. Check on their sites.

    Thank you very much to Kelly and all the great folk on this group!
    This update was causing major problems with Nero Ultra Edition 7 (I
    didn't notice any trouble with other programs).

    Again...THANKS!!

  8. Here's what's new.

    MS article had a new revision on April 19th.
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/918165

    You'll notice a slight difference in the registry tweak of the HP Share-to-Web daemon for systems running Windows 2000 versus Win XP or Win Server 2003.

    Updated post at Aumha.net to include tip on "Nview Desktop context menu" for computers that have Nvidia graphics card.
    I wish to thank Dmitry & Allen for sharing their knowledge at the Windows Update forum.

    That tip does not apply if you do not have an Nvidia card, or, if you do not have the Nview context menu. And it's intended as a possible work-around.
