  2. Same problem here: seems like they've made a pig's ear of them this month.
    Some of the 32-bit ones wouldn't work earlier, but now they do. Probably best
    to wait until ours have been sorted out too.

  3. Ensure that you are using Internet Explorer 32-bit to obtain updates since
    Windows Update uses certain ActiveX controls which are not supported under
    Internet Explorer 64-bit.

    You may receive an error message that contains the "0x8DDD0018" code or the
    "0x80246008" code when you try to download updates from the Microsoft
    Windows Update Web site or from the Microsoft Update Web site

  4. There's no difference in how I have used Windows update for several months.
    It isn't a problem with using the wrong IE, it is the updates themselves
    which are broken. Downloading them separately and running them results in a
    message to the effect that update.inf cannot have their integrity verified,
    and to check the crytography service is running, which it is.

  5. I didn't have any problems, but I know some people did. One update has an
    issue, at least with 32-bit, but it should be corrected shortly if it isn't
    already. It _does_ install correctly if you go to the KB for it, and
    download it directly.

  7. Yup. And the Windows and Microsoft Update sites have already got the new
    version.

  8. Thank you, but I know the 32-bit one is fixed, I already said that. What
    about all three that need to go on to x64? I *have* downloaded them
    individually (as I also said), and they do not work. None of them. I just
    re-downloaded one of them and it still does not work.

    We've now got the situation where security updates have been released, and
    as usual one can expect some idiot to take this as a signal to write an
    exploit for them, but the fixes won't apply leaving systems vulnerable.

    BTW, once Windows Update has downloaded bad fixes, how do you make it
    re-download them instead of trying to reinstall the defective ones it has
    already downloaded? Where are they stored so I can delete them? You can't
    remove them using Add and Remove programs because they aren't installed yet.

    Graham.

    Contact Microsoft support. Update problems are answered quickly and they
    seem to have their brightest people in that group. Just my opinion.

  10. Correct. And security related support calls are no charge.
