G'day Seth, I wonder why MS hasn't issued it as an update patch

  Sea Urchin 17:11 31 Jan 2011

Thanks for that - I'm now all "fixed".

  Sea Urchin 17:12 31 Jan 2011

It will be issued with the Feb updates

Thanks Seth, done and dusted.

Noticed that I/E9 Beta was acting a bit strange since yesterday opening some pages fairly slow.
So downloaded the Fix-It and things seem back to normal again.
So far so good only time will tell.
I usually use Firefox now but still use I/E occasionally so thought that since I had not used it for a while that that may have been the problem.
My Grand Daughter was using it earlier and she commented on how slow it was.
None of my security programs had picked up any problems.
Anyone else find that it was a bit slow opening pages or maybe it was just a different problem that I had which the Fix-if fixed.
Thanks for the fix Seth.

Is it best to use fix-it or wait for Windows Update which is usually first Tuesday of month i.e. tomorrow?

Usually 2nd tuesday of the month.
