December updates causing IE (possibly all network comms) to hang

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Andrew Ahearne, Dec 13, 2005.

  1. Has anyone else had any problems with these? As soon as I restarted my
    machine IE was hanging when trying to connect to websites. No unusual
    settings. Once I uninstalled them it was woking fine again. Both 32bit &
    64bit. Just a heads up.

  5. No problemos here. Maybe you need to do a restart.

  6. Please read what I've written before offering such a banal answer.

    I tried to reinstall the updates seperatly today and since have discovered
    that the poblem affects Internet Explorer only and is caused by KB905915.
    Everything else can acess the web fine. What is the correct channel to
    report this?

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    Since no one else seems to have the problem you're having, it would seem
    to indicate that the problem is isolated to your system and not a
    Microsoft problem.

    You need to find out what's wrong with your system and fix the problem
    at your location.

    I don't know how you consider the response banal. You asked if anyone
    else is having the same problem as you, and the responses are telling
    you they don't have the problem. What do you expect?

  8. Rick, the answer I took offence to was the one telling me I need to restart
    my computer. Not only is that a stock answer I have also explicitly stated
    that I indeed did restart my computer to counteract such. Also I didn't
    expect everyone to have the problem otherwise that would be pretty
    irresponsible, however whenever any updates come out they break some
    machines as not every configuration can be tested thus the reasoning for my
    post to try and determine some common denominators and ultimately get to the
    root of the problem. Forgive me if I offended.

    Apology accepted! Hope you get to the root of your problem. What is
    your system configuration? What anti-virus and what firewall are you using?

  10. I'm using Avast! Antivirus, MS Antispyware and the built in firewall.
    I've been playing around with it and it seems it's only when I click on a
    favourite or type in an address in Internet Explorer that it hangs. It's
    this specific nature that makes me wonder how it could be specific to my
    machine as it's not a connectivity problem rather an application problem.

    Take a look at this:
    news:
    I think this is the issue you are experiencing, and I have the problem as
    well (but only in x64 IE).
    The issue is not limited to x64 and I have already found several reports in
    various forums.

  12. Sounds pretty similar alright. However in my case I can access the web and
    favourites fine in Windows Explorer, it's only Internet Explorer (both)
    where I have problems. I guess I'll search around and see what I can find,
    thanks!

    Same problem with me after installing KB905915.

    I have uninstalled it and I am back to normal. Hopefully they will
    re-release a fix...

    The problem is not isolated to his system. I had it, and lots of others
    are reporting issues.
    I spend the better part of a whole business day yesterday addressing
    this B.S. and I still
    don't have it completely fixed.

    I found a fix for this. (If you are running IE7 as well)

    It seems that if you have IE7 installed in "unsupported" side-but-side mode
    (as I have) then the security update will break IE6.

    See the post from the IE team at
    http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2005/12/16/504864.aspx. Do read it before
    deleting anything.

    It talks about deleting a registry entry, however it does not mention that
    the key is in a different place on x64 systems. Here is where it was on my
    system:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{C90250F3-4D7D-4991-9B69-A5C5BC1C2AE6}

    I used regedit to delete and then re-applied the security update and my
    system functions as expecyed now.

    Hope this helps some others.
