I am wondering if system file kb891711 is a file I should worry about. That file hasn't started before upon comp. startup. Should I keep it or delete it?

Hi,

Yes, I would keep it as it is a Windows Update. More information about it can be found here.

However, it causes problems for a lot of machines.

If you don't notice problems, then by all means keep it, but if odd errors begin to occur, try removing it and see if that helps.

Hi

Where did you see this info - is it in [control panel][add/remove programs][windows setup]?

It looks like a windows update - the kb refers to 'knowledge base' and then the no. - most likely a critical update for your version of windows.

Go to microsoft.com, click on support and enter your kb no. and do a search - should find it there!
