    Patch Tuesday Nightmare MS07-069

    Because I still like some of you, I will let you in on a horrible fact that many poor people are experiencing right now.

    MS released this patch with a DLL that shouldn't have been included. The result? If you have an XP SP2 box with IE 6SP1 you may get a crash condition when you go from a HTTP to HTTPS site. Google Gmail is a sure way to test this problem.

    Code:
    Faulting application iexplore.exe, version 6.0.2900.2180, faulting module 
    urlmon.dll, version 6.0.2900.3231, fault address 0x0003b5ce.
    This is the issue. Notice the urlmon.dll reference.

    Fortunately, I found a fix. Merge this reg value and reboot. Presto. Fixed.
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet
    Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_PROTECT_DECOMPRESSION_FILTER_FROM_ABORT_KB942367]"*"=dword:00000001

    FU Microsoft!

    That's a HECK of an oops!

    Thanks TH!

    Are there any actual pros to this latest patch? And I presume no problems with IE7?

    This appears not just to affect IE 6...

    I was having some serious issues last night at home with pages "unable to display".....was blaming my ISP....appears that it may be this issue instead....finally just gave up...

    Hi, I have a similar error but not for IE.

    I have my own custom windows service, I am using the windows server 2003 OS.

    Whenever I call it, it throws some exception and in the event log, I see two entries every time, here are the details:


    Entry 1:

    Faulting application myWindowsService.exe, version 1.0.0.0, stamp 4782245a, faulting module kernel32.dll, version 5.2.3790.2919, stamp 462648ba, debug? 0, fault address 0x00015e02.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    Entry 2:

    An unhandled exception ( 'System.TypeInitializationException') occurred in myWindowsService.exe [3688]. Just-In-Time debugging this exception failed with the following error: Debugger could not be started because no user is logged on.

    Check the documentation index for 'Just-in-time debugging, errors' for more information.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.
    Can you please help me with it? Will the above solution for IE, also work for this one?

    Thanks a lot. I really need to solve this error.

    codenamevirus,

    I suggest you start your own thread from scratch, as I does not look (to my inexperienced eye at least) that your problem is related to the one in the original thread. That was basically a flaw in an MS update of a while back.

    Your problem seems to be something to do with myWindowsService.exe, about which, unfortunately, I know nothing

    Incidentally, your links both go to MS query pages rather than any further information?
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
