    Well, this might be good news for the W 98 SE users like me:

    I use W 98 SE and still IE 5.5 .
    I just checked using Windows Update.
    It seems to me that this update is also for W 98 SE users, at least I've got it listed ;)
    (Well, I might maybe wait a few days.)
    Any other W 98 users who got this one?

    Read for example also this thread at DSLR-security-forum:
    http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,9264670~mode=flat


    NOTE:
    Some time ago there were postings at DSLR and here at Wilders about a problem caused by the November 2003 update with respect to the scroll-bar.
    I don't know where here at Wilders that thread was (maybe me or someone else could find it), but reports from that DSLR-thread are telling that this latest update fixes that :)

    Ah cool, I'll have to try that. The scroll bar issue, while fairly small in the grand scheme I guess, is still an inconvenience...

    Hi FanJ,

    On 98SE here, and yes, it is a valid update for us as well! I have installed the update(downloaded and installed manually, not from update site) and so far, everything working good here. Scrolling problem fixed here, as well as the TechNet bulletin display problems I was experiencing. Here is the link to that thread you mentioned about the scrolling problem.

    http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=16739;start=msg103950#msg103950

    Also seems to have fixed the URL spoofing problem as advertised. Link to the thread discussing that.

    http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=18551;start=0

    When clicking on the exploit examples, now opens "page cannot be displayed" and at the top of the window it says "Invalid syntax error".
    At least, that is what I got, in case anyone else would like to confirm.

    Don't know if it's mentioned elsewhere, but there are a few updates of this patch at the same page.
