HOTFIXES: Windows XP SP2 & Windows 2000 SP4


Recommended Posts


OK, I still can't track down what change the Mydoom cleaner is making which gets WindowsUpdate to think it's be run. The most promising lead was a registry key being created called "RemovalTools" to which there was a REG_SZ entry called "MydoomTool" with a value of "OK". However, I manually added it on a fresh install and WindowsUpdate still saw it as a critical update to be downloaded. If anybody else manages to track down what change needs to be made, PLEASE let me know.

@ Incroyable HULK

I must say your doing a great job keeping the SP1 hotfixes list up to date BUT, it's kinda messed-up :wacko:

You should put the lowest number first (in this case KB814078) and the the highest number last (KB889293) to make a good order. And you should definitely add the replaced/superseded hotfixes after all relevant hotfixes like posted here!

Update note to HULK:

KB889669 replaces > KB889293 which replaces > KB834707

and since KB834707 is also allready replaced by KB873377, I think this KB889669 also replaces KB873377, right? :huh::P

I just saying that everyone could benefit from a well ordered hotfixes-list! Right now it's a bit messy, sorry :no:

@ RyanVM : Maybe you should wait for this future release to make the 1.04 pack.
Sounds good to me. And it's going to be a big update.
KB889669 replaces > KB889293 which replaces > KB834707

and since KB834707 is also allready replaced by KB873377, I think this KB889669 also replaces KB873377, right? :huh::P

OK, let me try to explain this to you (though you've pretty much got the right idea already).

889669 > 889293. 889669 appears to be 889293 with one extra fix included in the hotfix. And yes, Microsoft update rollups always postdate the older versions, so 889669 replaces 889293 which replaced 873377 which replaced 834707.

I hope that clears things up for you.

Windows Update should know obsolete hotfixes on its end. Try a fresh install with just 889669 and see what it reports.

EDIT: Here's a quote directly from the KB889669 article:

Starting with MS04-025, cumulative hotfixes for Internet Explorer are available in a separate update rollup that includes both cumulative hotfixes and the security fixes included in the latest security update for Internet Explorer. For example, update rollup 871260 includes the cumulative security fixes in MS04-025 and hotfixes released since MS04-004. Update rollup 889669 includes the cumulative security fixes in MS04-040 and hotfixes released since MS04-004.
