Strange question folks.

I am trying to find out if security update KB2706045 which was released with Augusts updates is offered for PC's running W7 64bit OS and that have ONLY ever had IE9 installed. If you have ever had IE8 then I think you might have this update.

latest update for IE9 is this one.KB2647753 a lot of folk having problems with it as it keeps downloading.

So maybe stay clear of it till it has been fixed.It never came with Tuesdays bundle of updates but it is there now.

Oops it may not have been for IE9 it does not say.Just that a lot of folk having problems with it.

I just downloaded it manually and it downloaded Ok.So maybe problem has been fixed.

Sorry mooly a little bit off subject I thought it was a follow up to your post but just looks like a bad download for some using W/7 64 bit.

Thanks Jock1e

The full story is that the cummulative IE9 update seems to change the way cookies and login data are handled. I asked on the MS forums and I'm constantly being told that this KB2706045 update should be present. In fact I'm being told to contact MS support but have you ever tried to do that... all the links take me to the MS forums.

Anyhow my feeling now is that this update may not be applicable to IE9 and so wanted to confirm if other users had in fact got it installed.

Link in the last but one post here has the full story, http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forums/1/tech-helproom/4164714/problem-with-todays-w7-updates-and-cookies/

It was a long read but I have to agree with you that the above update just looks like it is for those that use IE8 and not IE9.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2706045

So maybe you were getting the wrong information on that other thread.
