Problems with this week's Windows patches??

  Akinbiyi 10:50 14 Jul 07

I installed this week's Microsoft patches on my XP machine. After re-booting, all the printers had disappeared from Word, although other programs such as Outlook and Excel are OK. I restored my PC to the restore point immediately before the updates and the printers were fine. A couple of days later, I was prompted again by Windows update and installed the patches again. Same problem, no printers.

Has anyone else found this problem, do you know which update caused it, is there a work-around?

The updates loaded fine on my system. However, I do remember many months ago losing functions in windows explorer after a download. It was caused by my old HP printer! It could have something to do with that.

Did you check on the Microsoft website for any problems associated with the updates. Since I experienced my probs I always read the notes before downloading these updates.
