MicroSoft dangerous update (??) for Windows Me

  muscic lover 21:07 25 Mar 2005

I get the error code below when i installed a 'critical update' from Windows update from the Micro$oft site.

I run Windows Me with an otherwise sensible set up. I run Norton antivirus, and various other spyware items and keep all of them up to date. The error code is:
ERROR: 0D :08EF :0000F7D4

The update was : KB891711 I have since uninstalled this an d the PC works fine

Does anybody know why this happens and is MY pc safe to run without it?

Thanks in advance for your help

there have been a lot of people affected by this update. I had to uninstall it as it caused the computer to crash when trying to load web pages. It must alter windows settings as it stops firefox as well as ie from working.

Win98 SE +Firefox- works OK on my PC. But it appears in add remove programs and runs all the time. There was a suggestion that it did some firewall duty but no ill effects with Sygate.
