      This update caused my wireless connection the internet to stop working. Uninstalled the update and internet fired right up.

      Is there some settings I need to change to stop this from happening/

      Hi Tim – sorry to hear about your issues

      there should be free support for all security updates  see here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/978207

      what OS and version of IE are you running and did you get the update from Windows update?

      Rob i did get the update from auto Windows update. I am running IE 8 and vista. I have a wireless router and it shows that connection is OK. I am getting email so I know my hardware is working.I am guessing that there is some setting I need to change in the software but I am not finding any resolutions so far.

      (WinXP Pro SP3 French – Uptodate with Windows Update)

      What I would like to know is why this update made my access to a sharepoint site (extranet) really really REALLY slow… The one on the intranet was behaving normally.

      I spent a day figuring out what had happened!

      I first suspected my Internet connection, then my network parameters, then I tried some of the fixes I found on the Internet (registering atxprxy.dll)

      I finally tried to access the site using FireFox, and the speed was normal. So I reinstalled IE8 – and the problem was solved.

      When I updated using Windows update (only 2 updates) – the problem was back. That’s when I tried to remove 978207 – and the speed is ok again.

      Does anyone have a clue on this?

      Thanks.

      Hi Fad – sorry about your problems with this release.  I do not have much help I can give on this specific issue as it is not one I have heard of before.

      May be worth getting some free support from your local Microsoft office
