    On Saturday Jan 15th, Windows Update pulled down the following updates:

    Malicious Software Removal Tool - January 2005 (KB890830)
    Security Update for Windows XP (KB890175)

    After they were installed, I was unable to launch Windows Explorer, any of
    the My <contents> folders or the Control Panel from the Start Menu. Is there
    a bug in the installations or fixes? I have Norton Antivirus running on my
    machine as well and it has not detected any viruses. I am able to get to my
    disks through the Command Prompt and various programs with their own file
    dialog boxes. I also checked for any updates, but saw nothing. Any ideas how
    to investigate further or fix the issue?
