RE: Auto updates crashing IE 6 & 7
Yes, I am here looking for answers. I found a post that gives directions to
add a file to the registry but I don't want to mess with that.

You do not 'add a file to the registry' --> but you can use a 'file' to
'merge' information into the registry and is your solution.

Close all Internet Explorer windows.
Open notepad and put the following in it...

** copy below this line **
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_PROTECT_DECOM PRESSION_FILTER_FROM_ABORT_KB942367]
"*"=dword:00000001
** copy above this line **

It's a total of THREE lines saved into a a file that is not a .txt file
(file extension of .txt) but a .REG file (file extension of .reg).
Technically - it is nothing more than a text file with a file extension that
Windows recognizes and content that it knows what to do with. I'll repeat
them - but with "line #: " in front of each line so when it wraps you know
what it shold be.

line 1: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
line 2: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_PROTECT_DECOM PRESSION_FILTER_FROM_ABORT_KB942367]
line 3: "*"=dword:00000001

It's also recommended you press enter on the last line (taking you to a
fourth line with nothing on it) before you save the document in notepad as
(save as option) (type of "all files") 'ANameYouMakeUp.reg'... Then -
simply double-click on it and when it asks - you *do* merge it into your
registry.

Microsoft may release (may already have - dunno) a repaired patch for this -
so you can just wait if you desire - although in 30 seconds - with the
advice above (also found elsewhere) you could fix your problem.

Re: Auto updates crashing IE 6 & 7
And if someone here were trusting enough to download that REG file, what
would they do with it? If they wanted to "undo" the Registry edit, how
would they accomplish it?

Re: Auto updates crashing IE 6 & 7
Hi there,

Open with notepad to see whats in there: so you know now it is
okhttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/942367

backup registry before applying and restore registry to undo if wanted.

Best regards,
Michel Denie
