[filmscanners] RE: my XP laptop is driving me crazy



Karl,

You could be right; I will not argue with you.  But I have not ever had a
patch for Internet Explorer 6 or Outlook 2000 download using the "Windows
Update," although I have had the Service Pack for IE, which upgraded the
core IE code do so.  The patches aimed at eliminating vulnerabilities in IE
and Outlook or Outlook Express always required that I manually go to the web
site and specifically to either the Office Update Download pages or the
Internet Explorer Update download pages and manually select and download the
patches.  The things you refer to, I have found, work with WINXP Service
Packs and Patches that relate to the WIN XP OS program or those aspects of
IE that are integral to Win XP.

I also have no argument with your statement that there could be 10 or more
patches depending on when you installed the last patches; what I was noting
was that there was no APRIL 2003 CUMULATIVE PATCH listed on the Microsoft
web site as of last night, although there was a FEBRUARY 2003 Cumulative
Patch listed.  Thus, either the original poster really was referring to the
February cumulative patch or he had gotten a bogus patch from somewhere
other than Microsoft which could have contained a virus.  I also do not ever
remember downloading a patch from Microsoft that came as an attachment to
something else as he suggested his was.

Those were really my only points.

The "Windows Update" tool does install patches for Internet Explorer (IE)
and depending on when you 'installed' each patch, there could have been 10
or more of them.  You can manually force an update by going to "Help and
Support" in your "Start" menu and under the "Pick a Task" list, select
"Windows Update".

This will connect you to the net and pull up a screen that has a "Scan for
Updates" button.  Click on that, and it will identify any updates you may
have missed.

The error message in

Is typicall of a corrupted 'Dynamic Link Library' (DLL) module.  After
running Windows Update and scanning for Viruses, I would reinstall
Photoshop, since the error basically says that two internal parts of
Photoshop were unable to communicate with each other.

>From this introduction, this is not an XP Service Patch or any opther form
of XP patch; but it is an Internet Explorer/Outlook patch.  I do not believe
that these patches automatically download as a function of the Windows XP
Update function; so you must have manually gone to the Microsoft Office
Update site and downloaded the patches or gotten them from some other
source.  If it was the former, I doubt if you would have gotten this
description as part of the download; but even if you did, it should have
been free pf any viruses and should not have come as an attachment.  If you
got this patch and attachment unsolicitied or from some other source, I
would be suspicious.

Having said this, I just checked the Microsoft web site and there is no
April 2003 Cumulative Patch for Internet Explorer Service Pack 1; there is a
February 2003 Cumulative Patch for Internet Explorer Service Pack 1.

>From where did you get this patch?

This is the virus introduction that I mentioned in my last post. I have
received this one again today. There was an attachment to this which
contains the virus which I have not posted. Just how many of these con's
have you upgraded into your laptop??


MS Customer

this is the latest version of security update, the
"April 2003, Cumulative Patch" update which eliminates all
known security vulnerabilities affecting Internet Explorer,
Outlook and Outlook Express as well as five newly discovered
vulnerabilities. Install now to protect your computer from these
vulnerabilities, the most serious of which could allow an attacker to
run executable on your system. This update includes the functionality
of all previously released patches.

System requirements:
Win 9x/Me/2000/NT/XP
