    Just went back to windows update and installed kb867282 the IE update alone
    and after reboot samething happened errors galore, removed via add & remove programs, went back to updates and installed the rest of the updates minus the (kb86782 IE )and no problems after reboot, so for some reason the IE update dont gell with my box.

    Fully up to date on SP2 critical updates and no problems at all.

    Make sure none of the updates turned on Windows Firewall without your permission. That would cause some network problems. Sounds like the download or install jsut got corrupted.

    EDIT:
    Bugginess in windows antispyware application. When cleaning out the leavings of spyware it does not replace the bad stuff it deleted with the good stuff. The article says this is in the antispyware beta only but we all know M$...

    Knowledge base has instructions for manual repair.

    892350

    You can reach it by searching on spyware in the help option under Start. Has instructions for SP1 and SP2.

    Hi
    Attempted to install kb 867282 IE update for the third time with the same failures after reboot, I run blackice for outbound protection and it alerts me after reboot that userinit.exe-shlwapi.dll have changed also explorer.exe-wininet.dll has changed and i allow them to run but to get the same errors as i said in first post,

    Userinit.exe

    (Microsoft) USERINIT is the program which Winlogon runs immediately after a user successfully logs onto a Windows NT4/2000/XP/2003 PC. USERINIT runs logon scripts, re-establishes network connections, and then starts Explorer.exe, the Windows user interface (the START button, etc..).

    maybe somthing to do with this i dont know, any clues?
    Regards

    My computer didn't even start after I downloaded and installed the critical updates! Finally got it back with system restore, but now don't know what to do about updates.
