Problems with outlook 2003 after installing windows updates today

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by John Goodrich, Apr 13, 2006.

  1. Hi. Like many people, I always install updates the moment they show up in my
    system tray. Today that was a mistake. The updates all installed correctly,
    according to the system. However, once it reboothed, I could no longer attach
    files to most MS outlook addresses, which rendered my e-mail useless since I
    am always doing that in my line of work. Eventually, I uninstalled the
    updates which included a security update for the sharepoint team services and
    several security updates for XP. After I did this, my computer returned to
    normal functionality.

    I have never had this problem before so it was a bit distressing and took a
    good bit of my day. Hopefully our friends at MS will figure out this bug.

    John, I had the same problem today.

    Uninstalled just KB913807, which had been automatically installed a month
    ago and it fixed the problem. I then reinstalled KB913807 from a new
    download and the problem is gone.

    I hope this helps.

  3. Thanks, Bill, glad to know I was not alone. I tried your fix and
    unfortunately, it did not work on my PC. My system is on XP Pro. Our other
    computer is on home and accepted the updates without a hiccup. So it must be
    conflicting with something we have on my PC. How I will every figure out what
    is beyond me, though!!
    Anyway, thanks again for sharing that and have a great Easter weekend...

    I don't think you have any friends at Microsoft. They are the people who
    create the problems so you can pay them more money to get it fixed.
