  2. Have you seen any of this recently? See if it's relevant to you.

    Problems in Windows Explorer or the Windows shell after you install security
    update MS06-015
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/918165

    Revised - Vulnerability in Windows Explorer Could Allow Remote Code Execution
    (908531)
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS06-015.mspx
    Note according to the Bulletin, MS will release an revised version of KB908531
    (MS06-015) on April 25th - See FAQ section

    For those who are experiencing problems now after installation of the update and
    who have Hewlett Packard's Share to Web Software, there are two registry patches
    to choose from (run either one or the other) not both (NB both patches do the
    same thing):

    Ottmar Freudenberger's is available at:-
    http://patch-info.de/WinXP/Downloads/KB908531_Share-To-Web.zip
    (Note this is a Zip file and will need to be extracted. It contains a REG file
    which needs to be imported into the registry)

    and Kelly's patch is available at:
    http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm
    Line #383 - this is a vbs file and instructions on how to use such files are at
    the top of the page.

    If you hare not using "Share to Web Software" then consider the following:

    Are you using a Nvidia video card? Check for updated drivers.
    http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp

    Do you have Kerio Personal Firewall, if so make sure you read the article
    carefully: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/918165

    For additional information regarding this issue, have a look at the posting on
    Aumha.net by Maurice N, MVP Windows - Shell / User
    "Problems in Windows Explorer/ Windows shell due to 908531"
    http://aumha.net/viewtopic.php?t=19125

    If you uninstall the update make sure you read the section titled "Workaround
    for Windows shell vulnerability" under Vulnerability Details:
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS06-015.mspx

    Also you'll need to check Automatic Updates and make sure that the update isn't
    automatically downloaded - Configure Automatic Updating in Windows XP - 306525
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306525

    http://www.itnews.com.au/newsstory.aspx?CIaNID=31840
    Robear Dyer
    "not to turn off Automatic Updates but instead select either the "Notify Only"
    or "Download but do not install" option." To stop Microsoft/Windows Update from
    nagging users to add the uninstalled update, Dyer recommended that they check
    the "Don't tell me about it again" box
