Thanks to the News section of this site I learned MS had put out a new security update for IE on Feb. 11.

Just for kicks I ran Windows Update thinking that I could download the update from there, however much to my surprise I was told that I was all up to date (as I should be, I've been running it every day for a while now).

Which makes me wonder why MS would put out an important security update that I never would have known about if I hadn't visite this site on a whim? Is this a policy of theirs? Weird.

BTW this is my first post; I've enjoyed this site immensely, it's been a big help to me and my now week-long XP installation experience!
 
Hmmm it should be listed in critical upadtes, maybe they havent listed it yet...

They do some strange things for a big company like they are ....

Thats were X-erience.org come in handy :)
 
I've not yet searched for info on this fix, but often a new patch isn't added to Windows Update until a week or more after it's posted in the MSDN pages.

I don't have the cumulative Feb. 11 patch on my windows update neither =/

Just manually download or wait, as they said above, a week or so...
 
Try BigFix

BigFix is a similar prog to windows update but they tell me that they dont miss any fixes like WU does. the 11th Feb Security popped up at me from the taskbar today and the "fixlet" inlcuded a link to download the patch from the Microsft site.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
