Hi Its the time of month for the regular Microsoft down loads. But I have just received a message from IT Safe bulletins which is a Goverment inspired web site I think which reads as follows
=====
ITsafe Bulletin 2005/013A - UPDATE Number 1

What is it?
===========
Bulletin 2005-BUL-013 was issued on Tuesday 9th August, and related to
Microsoft Security Bulletin MS05-038 - a problem with "Microsoft Internet
Explorer" browser. Since then Microsoft have reported there have been
problems experienced with downloading the updates, and that they have been
temporarily removed. In addition, our UNIRAS partners report that
attempts are being made to use the problem fixed by this vulnerability to
attack computers.

What do I do?
================
Hold off updating your copy of Internet Explorer until the revised
download becomes available from Microsoft. ITsafe will issue an update
when this is available, and Microsoft's various automated update services
if enabled on your computer will detect the new update once re-released.END OF MESSAGE

Does any one have a comment on this matter ?

I couldn't download this particular update - all the others came in OK.

Just for the record,my first try resulted in a "hang" after 3% of first update.
Went back to square one,tried again,and all downloaded and installed O.K.

Thanks for all your comments. I am set for auto down load and install but haven,t seen anthing yet.Shall down load manually. I think the reason is that Microsoft does not like Firefox ,which I use.

I think you have to use Internet Explorer.
