    We were having problems saving... When we would use the drop down menu under
    save as the machine would freeze and close the program with out saving! We
    uninstalled KB908531 and the problem was fixed. Thank all of you for your
    post!

  2. .... and instantly reopend the security hole, KB908531 (MS06-015)
    is supposed to fix.

    For those 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:

    I've made a "patch" back on Saturday 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 via double
    clicking the contained REG file. You may have to reboot Windows
    afterwards.)

    or

    Kelly has made a patch with exact same functionality 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.

    Both of the above mentioned "patches" for the KB908531 *do not*
    work for Windows 2000. See the MSKB article 918165 for details.

    If you're using a Nvidia video card, you may want to update the driver
    for that card: http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp

    In case you're running a Kerio firewall software, please reread
