  golfpro 07:52 18 Dec 2008

I got a new update installation this morning for my PC (XP). At the new start command it went into a new start got as far as the desk top menus and then shut down. I tried to restart but it kept shutting down before it had even got to the menu stage. any one any ideas what I can try now?

try starting in safe mode.

If that works,Try a restore to a point before you installed the update'

I managed to get it started and restored it to yesterday. The update was still showing in the task bar, and when I had a look at it it was to plug that hole in Explorer. I don't even use WE so have disabled the update, but why by installing it did it muck my PC up.

The update is for Internet Explorer, not Windows Explorer
