    I updated earlier without thinking. I haven't noticed anything amiss though. I don't know whether it is worth uninstalling the update or not. Has anyone else updated?

    Windows 7 Update update kb2762895 causes windows explorer and taskbar to freeze
    My Windows Taskbar and Explorer froze upon reboot after "critical" update... Went to Microsoft site, did a Windows Verification Check, tried to download the same update from the Microsoft site and it said it wasn't a valid update for my computero_O How does that happen? Never happened beforeo_O Should I no longer trust Microsoft to automatically install updates? I'm a newbie here... Take it easy on me... Thanks in advance for your responses. ...Posted by: Ed Tittel

    Yesterday, Microsoft pushed an out-of-band (non-Patch Tuesday) update labeled KB2762895, which is designed to address application compatibility issues with Windows. Since its release, various parties have reported issues ranging from annoying to serious. I found something interesting with Internet Explorer in its wake that I figured out how to fix myself.

    It was a 'recommended' update as opposed to 'important'. Honestly, I worry about these updates. I should have checked first with Microsoft Answers or something. Either way, I don't seem to be having any problems. o_O

    A bit of a warning for a current update to Windows7/Server 2008R2 1 hrs. ago (permalink)
    The update, KB2762895, is having issues with VMWare Server 2.0.x. When enabled the routing and activity of the virtualized network cards ceases and no longer routes even though they are shown as correctly configured previously. Upon removal of this update the traffic has returned to a stable status. I would avoid this if necessary to ensure system stability for virtualized machines. I have not tested this with virtualbox at this time as I need to continue setting up for a training class. I will do so tomorrow unless someone can verify it is working with the update applied. Specifics to the update are here: KB2762895.

    User had one update KB2762895 and after installing update, could no longer access Exchange OWA website for their corporation ,
    User gets server security certificate error when bringing up website , which is expected, but then after saying "continue (not reccomended)" IE9 just sits and spins, and never brings up the target OWA website. This is only affecting this user on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit with SP1. And it started after user loaded the one single microsoft update KB2762895 .
    User is using IE9 version 9.0.8112.16421 .
    Please let me know if this should be posted in some other forum, and move it for me.
    So long story short, user is on Home Premium 7 64 bit SP1. Was getting to the corporate OWA website no problem until she shut down PC and it installed one Microsoft update. The update is KB2762895 . Now, she is the only emplyee who is unable to bring up OWA Exchange. Did usual stuff, reset IE back to defaults, etc. But, like I said, she is the only user on 7 Home Premium, and she is the only user who cant get to OWA Exchange. Even tested it from a couple of systems at my site running 7 and XP (Pro) and no problems.
    Did KB2762895 update break OWA ?

    Glad you're okay. Yeah, since it was a recommended update I started googling the KB# for it yesterday and did hide it after no satisfactory answers were shown at that time. That KB will stay in hiding.

    It seems to be affecting Home Premium users more than anyone else AFAIK, I'm using HP. My guess is that it could be some form of conflict, from what I can gather some people running some virtual programs seem to be having the problem more than others. Plus I have read it may also be some AVs that may be conflicting (if it is a program conflict). I'm running MSE.

    Perhaps I should have gone with Win 7 32 bit LOL! Mind you, I have not noticed any problems yet with KB2762895.

    Yes, I'm using Home Premium as well and Avast! free. I won't take any chances by installing the KB as it was just recommended and not considered important.

    I just wish MS would test these a bit before just releasing them. I shouldn't have to worry about these cowboy updates. No one should. :mad:

    After the update I couldnt access IE anymore at all. All I got was a blank white page. Advanced settings said I didnt have proper permissions to change anything even though Im the only account and admin on my laptop.

    That's a great suggestion although I actually don't know if MS does that. But then we all have different setups so it must be extremely difficult to get all updates without a hitch for everyone.

    WOW!! Did you get if fixed?

    I know someone who never installs any of the Windows Updates for at least a week after a release and that includes the 2nd Tuesday of every month. She just investigates all of them prior to installing just to make sure that there aren't any problems with them.

    From what I have read it seems to be affecting Hewlett Packard laptops a lot. I just have a feeling that MS are a little cavalier with these one-off updates.
