A Softie posting to a public newsgroup via Google Groups? I don't think
so...

I'm not at school tonight obviously (and have considered staying home
tomorrow if it is the nightmare today was haha) But you can contact me
there "(E-Mail Removed)12.ar.us" and tomorrow I can send you info about the
configs if you want. I tried however to find any commonalities and was
unable to find anything conclusive. Some have just plain IE6, others have
google toolbar, yahoo toolbar, etc. In my own room/office I have Windows 2K
on both a laptop and desktop and both were exhibiting this symptom until I
finally turned them off and gave up. My own computers that I was having
problems with have - www dot iwon dot com - as their homepage and the school
computers have our school's webpage - wonder dot k12 dot ar dot us - I tried
removing the updates and it didn't help and of course 2K doesn't have system
restore and I'm not about to try to reformat and reinstall the entire OS and
all software. I'll go to netscape before that. I just hope it gets fixed
tonight and released tomorrow and fixes over the bug without having to do
anything special.

I've experienced this on my system at home after the recent patch release. I
have not begun to roll this out in the office yet so I've gotten lucky there.
My system at home is now working properly after doing the following.

First I rebooted, no luck but had to give it a shot.

Second, I decided to uninstall the recent updates one at a time. There seems
to be an interdependancy between KB908531, KB911562, and KB912812. I say this
because when I tried to uninstall KB908531 first it showed the others as
possibly not working properly once the uninstall completed. KB912812 showed
KB911562 as being dependent as well. So, I started with KB911562. Uninstalled
and rebooted. The problem was no longer present with IE. I then installed
KB911562 alone and it rebooted. IE was still working properly and all the
patches were now installed.

I am not sure if this was just luck or what. But, since it worked for me I
thought I would pass it along. I am going to test this on more systems when I
get back in the office tomorrow.

I forgot to mention:

The Autocomplete and common IE troubleshooting steps did nothing

I also checked the registry reference of TYPEDURLS, those were set properly
and didn't appear to be a part of the problem.

Please see Mike's post !! It worked for me. I'm happy and turning off
automatic updates (I had it AU download them but I made the mistake of
installing them before trying them out at my work computer first) !
Good luck at the sweatshop . . . er . . . school, Tom.

Removing the KB908531 security cured the problem for me.

While uninstalling KB908531 a message came up saying that removing KB908531
would cause AIM's YGP (You've Got Pictures) to stop working. I had noticed
that YGP wasn't even working with KB908531 installed so removing it would
cause no additional problems. However, after removing KB908531 AIM YGP
started working. It looks like KB908531 is really the culprit here (of
course, the vulnerability that this update was supposed to fix remains, but
at least the computer works the way I'm used to for now, and until the update
gets fixed). The question now is when, and how we're supposed to know it's
fixed (what update # fixes the broken update). OK, it's getting a bit too
deep for most. I'm out.

Well now, If this dont beat all! My add remove programs box doesnt show the
update that caused my problem! Fine how do you do!
Microsoft, fixed yet?
Some of you may be interested in Sandi's link to a fix for the IE address
bar issue. She put it in the "windows update forces me to type http..."
discussion below.
It is a registry fix for autofill. At least I can navigate somewhere until
this thing is fixed.
