Windows Update for IE7 Doesn't Work

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Some users aren't able to use Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) after installing this month's six-bug patch, the Microsoft Corp. security team acknowledged late Wednesday as it published a work-around for the problem.

"The issue here is that after applying the update, these users may then see the 'File Download -- Security Warning' dialog box raised when starting IE," said Christopher Budd, a program manager with the Microsoft Security Response Team (MSRC) in a blog post. "After you close the dialog, you then cannot start IE."

According to Budd, the dialog box appears only on machines where the Temporary Internet Files directory, which is used as IE's cache folder, has been moved. IE will not have the proper access rights to the folder in its new location and so will throw up the warning and refuse to run.

QFT, It's also useful for ActiveX. I know, I know, ActiveX thing for FF 1.5 or something... it sucks.

IE7 isn't that bad. 6 was bad but I'm still in the process of going back to FF after installing vista.
