Mine had 5 listed also. Only 2 were successful, 3 failed. Opened Zone Alarm and there was something there, told it to pass thru the lock. Did anyone have to do it the same way. Why is it some critcal updates go thru ZA with no problem and others need permission?

Hmmm.

I downloaded and installed the "Critical Update for Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (KB831167)" without a problem but the "Cumulative Security Update for Outlook Express 6 Service Pack 1 (KB837009)" seemed to have rendered OE unlaunchable. I received the error "Unable to Launch Outlook Express. Cannot load MSOE.dll".

Deleting the OE patch did not restore OE to functionality and (for some reason) I could not uninstall OE from Add/Remove. I ended up deleting the entire OE folder from Program Files and reinstalling OE from Windows Update which restored Outlook Express -- but unpatched.

Running Windows 98SE.

There were 6 listed under critical updates...I have gotten 4 of them, wondering about the last 2. One is... windows xp driver 5.10.0.5410 RealtexAC97 Audio (KB833846) Do I need to download this?


The other one is (KB831167), it says: "You should apply this update if you beginto receive errors connecting to websitesafter you have applied the KB832894security update to internet explorer." Should I go ahead and get it since it is listed in critical updates? I am not experiencing any connection troubles.

Thanks in advance!

Was the driver listed as a "Critical" update?? If so I'm surprised.

There is usually no need to download generic drivers from WU unless a device is misbehaving. In fact, if a device IS misbehaving it is better to go to the vendor's website and download the specifically correct driver from it.

The other patch (I think) is the one that addresses a "post data" issue where if you hit the back button at a site where you entered data you will be returned to a blank page instead of getting the "post data" warning and the filled out page when you click through. If you are not troubled by this issue there is no need to download the patch.

It is never necessary to download the "recommended" updates unless one appeals to you.

Yes, it is listed under critical updates. I was surprised too...and remember reading that its better to go to the vendors website to download drivers. Since I am not experiencing any problems I guess I will just ignore both of them.
In the past I have always downloaded any & all "critical" updates.(never any recommended ones)...but this is the first time I have ever had a driver show up on that list.
I am still learning and people like you and places like this make it easier on us thats not so computer saavy!! Thanks AMB!

I am on XP Home SP-2 Beta now, so I don't know if these patches apply to me. I did try to download one and when I went to click run, it told me I had a more updated version than the one I was trying to install.

It took me forever too but finally came through..I have 98SE. Now I have on my desktop something that says: Microsoft XML 4.0 Parser SDK. What is this???? Do I delete??? It has an arrow so I'm assuming it is a shortcut??????

I also had the previous posted in PC Ask and Answer and Brett replied so anyone else having this shortcut thing may want to read this thread:

I checked updates and it said I didn't need any.
For some reason I haven't had any updates listed for about 3 months now. Is there another place to check other than windows update?

>>I checked updates and it said I didn't need any.<<

Surprising, since this series of patches affected every consumer OS and IE6 as well, I believe (someone correct me if I'm wrong.)

The only thing I can think of is that you have the automatic updater enabled and the patches were downloaded in the background.

I have never tried to get Windows patches from anywhere aside from WU so I don't know the answer to your 2nd question.
