Hi,
I installed the latest security pack on Dec 24 and my IE6 has be acting up every since. I am running win98SE, went to control panel, add/remove programs and could not find the install. I double checked to see if the install was successful and it indicates it was. I know this is the culprit because I have not installed anything else and it has been screwed up since. How to I find the update to uninstall it? I tried to find the Hot key info with regedit but it was not there either. I did not download the IE7 beta as indicated with this issue but I have also found others who have the same porblem without the IE7 installed but they are running XP and they can access the update to delete. Any suggestions?
Thanks Pippi :tazz:

The update I am discussing is Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (KB905915)
released Dec 13 2005, it is not the one released in 2001.

I got 2001 from the web site you listed in your first post.

http://www.microsoft...675/default.asp

With further searching I see that there are many issues on this update (KB905915)
Needless to say No one mentions the solution for Win98SE. I have to admit the
support for this gets slimmer and slimmer.

I did find this page that gives more info on the issues of this problem

http://blogs.msdn.co.../16/504864.aspx

But still Win98SE is not considered directly. I will have to check out the Registry info.

Weird when I click on the first link you provided I get the info for 2001, when I click on the one I copied from your link they give me a page that apologizes that it is no longer available. Weird!

Hi Pippi,

Just to let you know that I have had similar problems on my 98SE machine after installing KB905915 - which shows for uninstall as Q905915 alongside Internet Explorer in the Add/Remove programs list in control panel. My symptoms were an intermittent spontaneous reboot at beginning of day cold start after user logon and desktop load had settled(and only then). Also I noticed that I was having to double, double click on Int. explorer control buttons sometimes. I am using a large JPEG wall paper from internet explorer on my desktop. Since I have a fairly tight control over my configuration I have deduced after much testing that this update is likely to be the cause. I have removed it (as described above) and will update on any progress. I also run Finjan Beta first strike active X detector at start up and there are some microsoft mutterings of active X issues with this update.

Regards. Marny

OMG THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Don't know how I missed that when I was looking throught the add/remove to uninstall! You have made my New Year's Day! I should have learned from other installs to wait a while before updating so the bugs are worked out. Again Thank You. And Happy New Year!
