    Re: Brief but alarming problem with this update

    Update applied. Computer restarted. Upon clicking on "start" the HP control centre opened, followed immediately by several other HP windows (scan a document, send a fax, transfer photos or documents) accompanied by the default error sound, and a rapidly flashing window alluding to some configuration and connection issues. Multiple firewall alerts (## (valid application) is trying to connect...). Eventually able to close these down by repeatedly clicking on all the red X's. Hmm. Interesting.
    So, try to get to control panel, same thing happens. Hmmm.
    I have a shortcut to the control panel in a utilties folder full of shortcuts on the desktop. Let's try that.
    Click on the folder. Immediately multiple applications of the first item listed in that folder open, much as before. Bu@@er.
    Try clicking on the "IE" link on the desktop. Multiple firewall alerts. 32 instances of Internet Explorer opened up. Had to deny access in the firewall to stop it at 32, and use taskmanager to close 'em all, one by one. Clicking on the red X's did nothing. Well, this is challenging, I thought.
    Updated and ran a memory scan with AVG AS, just in case. Nothing found, but now the "start" button works as it should.
    Restarted computer. All looks normal. Check "add/remove programs". This update is listed. Check a few other applications. All OK.
    Anyone else have this issue?

    [EDIT] PS, apart from a very slow response (stall/restart/try again twice, at last success) when uninstalling the .NET framework last week, I've had none of the issues that this update is designed to fix. Everything was just humming along.

    I've had problems today with my internet pages sticking fast, sometimes necessitating a restart, but had suspected it was my updating of Opera to 9.21 so went back to 9.20 It has happened once since then as well though.

    Maybe it was something to do with that MS update?
