    I've had to switch off automatic updates because the recent set makes my
    works calendar unable to open. Has anyone else had that problem? Does
    anyone know a solution?

    Outlook express won't open e-mails and will not let me reply with these last
    updates. I'm leaving updates on in case Microsoft find the problema nd fix it.

    Problems in Windows Explorer or the Windows shell after you install
    security update MS06-015 (15 Apr-06)
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/918165

    Microsoft Security Bulletin MS06-015
    Vulnerability in Windows Explorer Could Allow Remote Code Execution
    (908531)
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms06-015.mspx has
    been revised to v1.2 to reflect the issues in KB918165.
    From the FAQ section:
    "On Tuesday, April 25, Microsoft will issue a targeted re-release of
    the MS06-015 update."


    Now may not be the time to learn Regedit.
    I suggest you use a .reg file already done for the purpose.

    http://patch-info.de/WinXP/Downloads/KB908531_Share-To-Web.zip

    Unzip it, extract the .reg file to a folder, right-click it and select
    Merge and confirm when asked.

    OK. I am not an OE expert so I suggest you try an OE group.
    You might read these first in case they are relevant:

    was not possible to save Word 2003 files in the usual directory and I can not
    find the individual saved word files in the directory. Also seem to have
    problem printing with my HP printer. Note the comment about a fix to be
    released on April 25.Could that help?

    This is my first time coming into this site and making comments, so bear with
    me. Noticed some complicated comments about the KB908531 update that sound
    complicated. I was unable to navigate on the web after these updates until I
    restored my system, but kept getting the updates will install dialog box
    until I turned off the auto updates and went to the update site. THE ABOVE
    KB908531 WAS LISTED AS AN OPYIONAL AND WHEN I CHECKED IT OUT, FOUND IT IS
    INTENDED FOR THE IE7Beta WHICH I DON'T HAVE AND I THINK IS NOT YET READY FOR
    RELEASE. In other words, an IE7 update is being installed to earlier
    versions and screwing things up. Leaving auto update off for now until they
    straighten this out.

  11. Nope, you're mixing up KB908531 (MS06-015) with the indeed optional
    KB904942 update obviously.
    Nope again.

    Bye,

    No.
    I have no idea how you came to these conclusions.

    KB908531 is not listed as an OPYIONAL
    KB908531 is not intended for an IE7 Beta.
    An IE7 update is not being installed to earlier versions.

    Please read all the information in this thread.

    Thank you so much for all your help Alan,
    I decided to migrate my e-mail to Outlook, I have been meaning to for some
    time, but was worried I may lose my e-mails. I had no need to worry it guided
    me straight through the process and very quickly copied all my e-mails
    accross.
    I just hope they don't break Outlook now.
    Regards
    Jean

    Didn't have a chance to get online yesterday, so I didn't see your responses
    until a few minutes ago. You guys are right, I blew it somewhere when I
    looked up the material. But I looked up KB904942 as mentioned by Ottmar and
    that's the one I had the problem with. Sorry bout that and thanks for the
    extra eyes guys. Guess I'll stick to driving trucks, at least I know how to
    read maps and street signs!
