Windows Updates

776 posts in this topic

Mimo, I thought you might consider adding the following to your

"Mimo’s Windows XP Service Pack 3 update-list"

After installing IE8 I install ie8-prompt-method2.reg (in ie8-no-wsprompt.zip)

to Remove the “Download Windows Search” Prompt in Internet Explorer 8 Address Bar.

The reason for doing this is explained at the link below. The download file is available on this page also.

How to Remove the “Download Windows Search” Prompt in Internet Explorer 8 Address Bar

Thanks for your awesome update list!

Mimo,

re: Last Update Check: 2009, November, 26 Last List Update: 2009, November, 26 HFSLIP 1.7.9 (final)

<line> 2007-03 User Profile Hive Cleanup Service 1.6d Optional n/a UPHClean-Setup.msi (necessary with SP3?) HFGUIRUNONCE (I don’t use it)

For article (now n/a) above, you might want to link to article KB837115 below.

You experience log off problems on a Windows XP-based, Windows Server 2003-based, Windows 2000-based, or Windows NT 4.0-based computer

Hope this helps,

Lilla

The date should be <b>2009-11</b> (not 2009-05)
You're so right...

Good link!

@Lilla&Kiki

Regarding UPHClean I'll update my list. I remove the "(necessary with SP3?)" and also I link to the actual beta. For me it seems that the 2beta is stable and fixes problems of 1.6d. But I list both because 2.0 is still beta.

@Lilla

Regarding the Reg-Tweak for IE8 I'm not sure if this is a thing for the update-list. Of course it's a good hint but I'm sure that are many more... E.g. I do many reg-entries after installing XP

Hmmm....

Thx, Mimo

Mimo,

It seems like we are missing the update discussed here

MSXML 4.0 Service Pack 3 (Microsoft XML Core Services) Version: 1.0; Date Published: 9/29/2009; Description: MSXML 4.0 Service Pack 3 (SP3) is a complete replacement of MSXML 4.0, MSXML 4.0 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and MSXML 4.0 Service Pack 2 (SP2). MSXML 4.0 SP3 provides a number of security and reliability bug fixes.

As best I can figure (my best effort but I'm not an expert at this), the above would affect the update-list as shown below...

I hope I'm not wrong about this, but if I am please don't hesitate to correct me.

Hi Lilla,

checking the last updates regarding MSXML I realized that SP4 for MSXML is available. See table 7, remark from 2009-11-26. But I had no time so far to figure out what is necessary to go to MSXML4 SP3. Thx for your work! Is this tested and checked against windows-update, especially in combination with KB954430?

CU, Mimo

Just a quick note - IMAPI_XP_SRV2003_x86.exe which is part of KB952011 contains an old version of cdrom.sys.

New Security Updates:

· Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (974455): MS09-072

Replaces: MS09-054

hi mimo! i think above entry must be: Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows XP (976325) instead ... as MS09-054 points to (974455).

for table 10, Microsoft® Windows® Malicious Software Removal Tool (KB890830) has been updated to windows-kb890830-v3.2.exe.

mimo, would you have an updated link to the KB892130? from what i understand, having LegitCheckControl.cab should not make ie prompt me to install this anymore before downloading genuine updates from ms? could anybody confirm this link to KB892130 as being the latest please ... & lastly, would this (KB892130) work in hf?

cheers!

@Kiki Burgh, no, that is not the latest. The latest is v1.9.40.0. I can't recall the MS URL right now. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=39204 should be it but is still linking to 1.9.9.1
thanks -X-! my apologies for the confusion but i was actually referring to KB892130 ... that was the link i provided (edited my post above so as not to make it misleading). i have checked on the link you provided too which shows FileVersion=1,9,0009,1 ... same as what Mim0 has in the list ... it'd be good to know the new link to the updated file though. cheers! :hello: Edited by Kiki Burgh

Adobe Flash got a security update also.

I've uploaded an updated SWFLASH.CAB (version 10.0.42.34) here

SHA1 checksum c0d67df4e53927ecf834ca007816d43a0c62add5

MD5 checksum 07bd474624bfa8e0937dea4eefdf18a8

@Kiki Burgh, no, that is not the latest. The latest is v1.9.40.0. I can't recall the MS URL right now. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=39204 should be it but is still linking to 1.9.9.1

Are you sure there is an updated cab provided by MS? Not a manually reworked one? As far as I know the most recent version of 'legitcheckcontrol.dll' is to be found in KB905474 (Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications, last updated 2009/03/24).

Sorry, but I can only provide the direct link to the German version. Maybe someone can determine the English one (from Windows update log)?

Extracting this file and then using "wganotifypackageinner.exe" (properly renamed to something like "WindowsXP-KB905474-x86-<LNG>.exe") in the HF directory worked for me. hfslip took care of the rest, no MU/WU complaints afterwards...

HTH,

Tomalak

I did a little more testing and also came across and old post of mine. Yes, 1.9.40.0 is the latest and is in the package WindowsXP-KB905474-ENU-x86.exe (extract WindowsXP-KB905474-ENU-x86.exe then extract wganotifypackageinner.exe from the results and you will find legitcheckcontrol.dll v1.9.40.0 ( I don't use notifications...yuk!).

If you go to WU the cab that installs is 1.7.69.2 => windowsxp-kb892130-enu-x86_72e487d115be77f49f64053893a23ecb58bc59cb.exe

If you go to the Genuine page ( http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/default.aspx ) the cab that installs is 1.9.9.1 => /C/0/C/C0CBBA88-A6F2-48D9-9B0E-1719D1177202/LegitCheckControl.cab Also at this url: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=39204

So I guess you are safe with 1.9.9.1. I think MS might have pulled the 1.9.40.0 due to false positives or they have their head up their butts with all these different versions. :wacko:

In relation to KB955759 (Indeo Codec) and following http://support.microsoft.com/kb/954157 is there a simple way to just unregister/remove the codec? Would an RDV in HFCLEANUP do the trick if I want to remove it?

I don't know if anybody uses the Indeo Codec but I thought it might be a good idea just to remove it altogether since I've never use it (or fail to realise if I ever do). If there is an existing mechanism to remove useless codecs in HFSLIP then please let me know, I'd be interested to use it :)

Here is what my RDV looks like in case anybody interested.

ir32_32.dl

ir41_32.ax

ir41_qc.dl

ir41_qcx.dl

ir50_32.dl

ir50_qc.dl

ir50_qcx.dl

ivfsrc.ax

gluon - you'd need a REM for that, not an RDV. The RDV is to remove stuff from cabs. The REM filters stuff out of the i386 and some inf files. You'll also need a RIN that looks like this: mmdriver.inf;x You'll need to find out what other INFs call out the other ax's. You'll need to filter those INFs out with the right RIN callout. Sorry, I don't have a list of that stuff. If you want to start a hfcleanup thread, please do so. This is a WU thread. :)
