Re: Explorer 6 Update KB942615

My microsoft updates are set to manual for just such occurrenses, so I never
installed and uninstalled explorer 7 because friends had warned me about it.
I guess I will leave KB942615 on the back burner until microsoft comes up
with a fix...

Bear and Lazarus:

Bear's fix did not work for me either.
I had windows firewall disabled AND my AVG disabled when I did my custom
install the FIRST time.
I always use "custom" option. All I selected were the 3 critical updates.
No IE7.
When I re-boot--error comes back
When I uninstall KB942615--all is well.
I wonder what gives?

Bear, that didn't help:

I followed your instructions precisely as written - after I completed your
step 5 and restarted IE6, the error came back - here's the event log entry:

I'm going to remove 942615 again, because after your step 3 when I started
IE6 I didn't experience the problem. Thanks for trying, though.

1. Disable your anti-virus application, any real-time protection provided by
an anti-spyware application (except for Windows Defender; includes Spybot
Tea Timer, SpySweeper Guards, AVG AS guard.exe, etc.), disable any
third-party firewall AND enable the Windows Firewall.

NB: If you're running ZA Free firewall, you may need to uninstall it instead
of disabling it. You're "working without a net" now: Don't to ANYTHING else
online (e.g., browsing; reading email; chatting) except #4 below until your
anti-virus application has been re-enabled!

2. Uninstall "Security Update for Windows XP (KB942615)"] via Add/Remove
Programs, if installed (make sure Show Updates box is checked at top right)
and reboot.

3. Re-do #1 above.

4. Go to and Custom install any Critical
Updates offered. **DO NOT INSTALL IE7!**

5. Reboot > Make sure everything in #1 above is enabled again and, if
applicable, disable the Windows Firewall and enable your third-party

After instaling all the updates today, I found out that after cleaning my
cache, I found that trying to go on certain websites, even my MSN mail I
would get the standard message"Explore has encountered a problem.....". I
did a system restore thinking newly instaled software was the problem.
thing was fine until I reinstalled the updates.
Since only the update pertaining to explorer was KB942615, I uninstalled
and problem solved.
My question is...when will Microsoft have a new update to fix what
was suppoed to fix or a patch to fix KB942615................
