    Hi All

    Does anyone know for sure how many updates there were for the recent Windows patches? I got only 2 i thought there was supposed to be 4. Here's what i got:

    1.critical update for IE 6 service pack 1 (kb837009)

    2.cumulative security update for OE 6 service pack 1 (kb837009)

    Am running Windows ME, IE 6

    Thanks a bunch.

    Sorry, you'll have to wait for another ME user for a "correct" answer. The collection was for everything from 98 (maybe even 95) on up plus IE and OE, and the number of patches depends on the particular OS version. For my XP-Home there were 5 of them, a little over 3 megs total.

    Also, if you check the FAQs at Microsoft, you'll see that some of the patches have been deemed 'not critical' for 95, 98 & ME.

    You could also have a look at this thread at DSLR.

    Randy tells you there for example some things about MS04-013 837009 with respect to Windows 98.

    On my Windows 98 SE IE 5.5 SP2 (Dutch) box I have manually installed that patch "MS04-013 837009".

    I installed it yesterday (after making a backup-image of my system).

    So far I don't see any problem with it.


    See for that patch this MS site:
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS04-013.mspx


    Side notes:

    That MS site says:

    Size and version of those two files are the same on my system.
    Only date/time are slightly different, but that could very well be caused by my Dutch version:

    Inetcomm.dll :
    date/time: woensdag 3 maart 2004 17:04:34

    Msoe.dll :
    date/time: woensdag 16 oktober 2002 9:04:30


    Of course I could make a full report about every file change after installing that patch.

    If I recall correctly, FanJ, that was the only one of that set of updates that was listed as 'critical' for ME. (Or did I miss one?)
