      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

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


    4. Tim says:

      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?


    7. robmar says:

      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
