Please state your current IE version full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3;
Vista SP1; Vista SP2 Beta) when posting to this newsgroup.

What "Optional" update are you referring to, Doug?

Is Automatic Updates enabled?

Re: Updated from Microsoft and now MS can't find files
IE7 (as I mentioned), WinXP3....

I should have said "Custom" rather than Optional.
Yes, Automatic Updates in enabled.

Re: Updated from Microsoft and now MS can't find files
CrystalBallİ sez...

You may have a horked (dirty; bad; flawed) install of IE7. I suggest that
you...

1. Uninstall IE7 (which automatically returns you to IE6) EXACTLY per
http://www.ie-vista.com/kbase2.html [Only use the Command
%windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe if you cannot uninstall via Add/Remove
Programs!]

2a. Uninstall all toolbars and third-party Windows Themes (including Window
Blinds).

2b. Disable all Norton Add-ons, if applicable.

3. Reinstall IE7 EXACTLY per
http://www.ie-vista.com/known_issues.html#pre-install <= Steps #1-8, #10 &
#11; take note of #12, then STOP!

NB: Use http://www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/default.mspx as the
installation source, not Automatic/Windows Update.

Or Direct Download link:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...0-081805b2f90b

Tip: Save the installer to your desktop, do not Run it.

4. IMMEDIATELY go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and install any
critical updates offered. If a "Root Certificates" update is listed in the
Optional category, install it to take full advantage of IE7's additional
security.
