    Funny I should see this after logging into my hotmail account about 20mins ago, and given a mandatory account password change, for someone else using my account. Sure enough in the sent box were eight addresses I didn't recognize, sent in the past couple weeks, with the only activity before that being in 2009.
  5. Recently I downloaded Explorer 9 and ever since I have been having problems viewing some videos sites. For example if I bring up MSN and want to watch a news video I can hear the sounds but the picture isn't there or it is just bits and pieces like tile. I can videos of YouTube but many internet chat sites I can't see what I am typing. Does anyone have an idea of what's wrong. Before downloading, Explorer 7 worked fine. Thanks.
  6. Guest your fault is using Internet explorer in the first place don't you know their are a hell of a lot more secure and faster alternatives to internet explorer?
  7. You still use IE?

    I have W7 on one machine and WHS 2011 on another (in the same office). I have been simultaneously updating them the past few days. I rely on ASP .NET quite a bit in, and all the update have referenced .NET or some security patch.

    And please use Chrome..
  9. I have installed this on a few servers, the majority did not require a reboot however one did. Overall a quick patch install without any problems.

    "... Security Bulletin page doesn't mention a mandatory reboot"

    It required a reboot on my Win7-SP1 system!

    Check for updates but don't install. Win 7 64 bit. No updates in the last week, at all. I don;t use IE tho. Did A fresh install on another machine and im pretty sure this update was in there. My windows update on this machine says everything up to date which is odd looking at the update history its not on there... (Same version of windows)

    At least the guys at Microsoft didn't go home early for the holidays. This patch is most appreciated.
