    Hi,
    Just woundering if anyone else had this problem, Microsoft released few Hotfixes last week anyway finaly got around to installing them on 3 PC's but here the is a "What the hell is going on!" routine comes in. One PC is acting up and not sure why, the update is KB908531 when the patch is on IE will not go to an address I type in the Address bar it just sits there.. If the patch is removed IE works ok, Like I said though the other two PC's work with the patch. So anyone an idea why ???

    Its no Problem really, just the PC it plays up on is a New System and me Main PC.. :( I have disabled it on Microsoft site so it will not get installed again...

    If the vulnerability had been exploited on your machine prior to the update, you might have issues after the update.

    I would uninstall the update, run a full virus and adware scan (in Safe Mode, if necessary), reboot and reinstall the update.

    Other than that, I can't think of much.

    Good luck!

    Thats what i would do but thats not helpful.
    Are you sure the update isn't locking down IE so well that you cant view anything?
    Check security setting?

    The latest round of patches have issues. Typical MS BS.

    Security set at medium.
    I had no problems untill downloaded kb908531
    I transfer a lot of files to web sites.
    Deleted kb908531 and get no problems
