Ms Security Update MS06-015

Apparently not as much of an update as it is a problem. 1 week after this update users started to complain about Internet Explorer address bar was behaving strange. When they typed www. the adress didn't work. This is a minor annoyance but for our users it was enough trouble to toss them off the radar. We solved this problem when there was only to users complaining, which was quite lucky, soon A LOT of people was complaing about all sorts of stuff! Downloads not working, my documents behaving strange etc. But our little patch that we based on the registerkey found at solved it all. It doesn't sound much, but it was my first fix that actually made an direct impact on as many as 100 users in one blow.

Here's the key for anyone interested:
Copy to a textdoc,change extension to .bat and run the file as admin

echo Installation av Hp Fix
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Cached" /v "{A4DF5659-0801-4A60-9607-1C48695EFDA9} {000214E6-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} 0x401" /t REG_DWORD /d 00000001
echo - Completed
