My Panda AV tells me I need to block MS06-026.

I have read all the MS notes but cannot find the actual download.

I am using Win98SE, can someone point me to the actual download.

Download from the 'Security Patch' link

Thanks ArrGee, but I'v looked over all the links and cannot find it.

Do you know if the patch is called something other than MS02-026

According to Microsoft, this particular update is only available through Windows Update:

click here

(click on the Affected Software and Download Locations link).

It's listed as Critical.

Thanks Stuartli,

I must be doing something wrong because I just keep going round and round.

Windows Update list no critical downloads only languages

I just cannot find the download for this thing.

Can you possibly give me an exact location

Regards Mike

It states:

[2] Critical security updates for these platforms are available only from Windows Update.

The [2] is included in the final column of the Affected Software etc so it should install automatically.

Have you checked in Add/Remove Programs or, alternatively Belarc Advisor, that it is listed?

If you don't have Belarc Advisor, it can be downloaded from here:

click here

A little way down the page the various MS updates, patches, HotFixes etc are verified as being installed or missing.

I'm curious as to why your AV program should try to block the update.

  Mike 22:17 15 Aug 2006

My Panda AV is not blocking the download, it keep telling me to download the patch. The response from Panda is to go where you have indicated.

Normally I go to Windows Update and I get a list of the critical updated and some others.(languages) which I dont bother with.

I have done all the updates listed but the AV keeps saying I need MS06-026. So I think I will download Belarc Advisor and see what happens.

This is the first line of your thread:

My Panda AV tells me I need to block MS06-026.

  Mike 23:24 15 Aug 2006

Sorry for the misunderstanding that not what I meant. It should be to block the issue as described in MS06-026
