  1. Thanks for the warning. I'm 3,000 miles away just to be safe! I wonder if there is another client you could use instead of OE that may help with your problem? I'm not sure what else is out there these days. You could always bite the bullet and let it just download. I've done that before and it's not really that bad if you let it run over night.
  2. I've actually had this happen with newer email apps like Thunderbird on Win10. If you don't want to go though it one work around is just logging into your account online and emptying your mailbox there so there isn't much to download. I think, but I can't say for sure if Outlook has it, some programs let you set how long back you want to download. Have you tried poking around for any of those type setting?
  3. I did the same IE8-KB4089187 download first and got the same results, with the addition of the Time Zone update that came out between this set of updates and the last set. Anyway, the install went smooth.
  4. I've gotten enough help here that I'm over joyed I can help someone else in some small way. I still have that version I mentioned I downloaded on my hard drive. If you have a tough time downloading for testing I can email that to you if necessary. Good luck!
  5. You can actually download. Try pasting http://download.trusteer.com/Gcur4Wtnu/RapportSetup.exe into the wayback search. I downloaded version 3.5.1609.76 as a test from 2016. It looks like that download link goes back to 2013, but with some searching you may find an older file.
  6. Dave, have you tried searching the wayback machine for the version of Rapport you need? http://archive.org/web/ I tried looking for you, but it's down for maintenance now.
  7. Hey Dave, just another thought on your problem. You mentioned your colors were off in your Search Companion when the problem occurs. Have you looked at your video drivers? Are the video cards the same between both your machines? I'm just spit balling ideas. I'm like you though, It drives me nuts when something breaks inexplicably.
  8. It is working for me. I did it 4 times consecutively and it loaded each time like it did the first. The blue colors were still in place as well.
  9. Hello Dave, I'll chime in on your quandary. My search puppy finds his bones. I gave him 3 searches in succession to test it out and they all worked fine. I've also had the search service turned off for years for performance and streamlining reasons if that's a difference. I'm running all the updates to date. My NTFS update actually got refreshed too in the last update because it sensed I was using the older ntfs.sys and I haven't downgraded that yet either as I'm sending out some newsletters on that machine I don't want to interrupt.
  10. Thanks, guys! After doing the IE8 KB4074736 update as wyxchari suggested my MU ran pretty quickly and I got all but two of the updates on Bersaglio's list. I manually downloaded and updated kb4019276 and KB4011703. Those installed smoothly and all seems well!
  11. Glnz, if you're looking for something that's free and seems to be working well without conflicts you may want to give BitDefender a whirl. It's been pretty reliable for the past 3 or 4 months that I've been using it,
  12. I don't know if this will help you much, Dave, but I'll let you know my setup. I've had the Search service disabled long ago in an effort to both speed up and secure my pc a little more. However, I do use the Search Dog. Is that the Companion? I forget it's name, but I think that's what you're asking. Anyway, in that configuration, that works for me. I used the lil doggy to help find the ntfs.sys files to swap out after the KB4056615 update.
  13. They must have just updated it. 0.0.6591.3 is out now. It still works the same and I didn't have any of the errors it was supposed to correct.
  14. Thanks! This confirms that the XP updates resolved neither Spectre or Meltdown for me. And both my Win 10 machines are susceptible to Spectre.
  15. That's the only problem I've seen. Is that the only problem? That I don't know. I'd bet you're right, but I'm going to error on the side of caution for now...even though I'm mixing KB's to do it.
