Just saw the first real damaging post re. KB978262 as it pertains to Windows 7.
Please read this on the ‘Microsoft Answers’ forum. Damn YOU Microsoft.
This is the first report of this February 9 update clobbering Windows 7. But, it is enough.
DO NOT INSTALL these updates. Wait.
The XP community is getting hammered and they are not amused. The same Microsoft community is beside itself … but there is even a comment from a MVP talking about ‘dead bodies.’ CUTE. This is what we need. Microsoft MVPs talking about dead bodies when it comes to Windows Updates.
Some are claiming that this is a Microsoft conspiracy to get XP users to upgrade to Windows 7. I doubt that. Microsoft isn’t that clever. Trust me, on this.
So, my recommendation for Windows 7 users: DO NOT INSTALL KB978262, KB971468, KB975560, KB978251 and KB890830 as yet, though from all we can see it is KB978262, the ActiveX kill bits update that is the culprit.
Better to be SAFE than sorry.
Good Luck. We really need it.
Thanks & Cheers.
