Hello, I have found that my pc running Windows ME is not stable with the KB918547 update installed (I'm pretty sure this is the update that causes problems, but I have not installed the other (IE) updates that were released at the same time either....yet). I believe this is the graphics engine update that MS issued immediately before "support" was dropped for 98SE/ME OSes. KB918547 causes freezes when the pc is idle (whole display freezes, mouse, keyboard, system tray clock etc.) and sometimes when I click on links or run maintenence programs (scan disk etc.). It did not cause freezes when running graphics intensive games or benchmarks, which I found to be odd. It even affected DOS apps like memtest86+, froze after 89% of the sixth pass with no memory errors up to that point. I restored an image backup, installed the updates and the problem returned, installed the image a second time and no problems at all in the last three days, whereas my pc was locking up several times a day with the update(s) installed. Will NOD32 still protect me from the exploits that may be developed? I do not use IE for anything other than Windows Update and since the fiasco with the final update(s), I doubt I'll be using it for that anymore either. Firefox and SeaMonkey (default) are my browsers of choice. Thanks for any input.
