    Not clearly an update issue at all. Indeed, not much is clear except that XP
    w/SP3 and IE8 play very well together. Very well. The issue is local to your
    stuff. Sorry.

    I am a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher and have the opportunity to work
    on a large number of machines ...I have mixed feelings about IE8 and XP

    Though it works very well on about half the machines I've installed it
    on...that means it works "less than" very well on the other half.

    Had to uninstall it and use IE7.


    It would not be a bad idea if you could state specifically which update
    it was that caused the problem. The problem does indeed look like it was
    caused by the update...but there is of course the possibility is
    specific to your setup

    And just how is this a useful FYI post since you omitted to mention either
    the update number or the .dll file that got updated?

    well...here's what i was thinkin. if for some reason there are still xp
    users that they *might* wanna maybe check their updates should ie8 no longer
    open for them.
    you guys have turned into real butt wipes. i want blinky back.

    One reason you are recieving such negative feedback to your post is the lack
    of specific information, you specify an unknown security update and an
    unknown DLL error.

    Are you perhaps referring to KB972270?
    "MS10-001: Vulnerability in the Embedded OpenType Font Engine could allow
    remote code execution"

    This update(that was released on Patch Tuesday) replaced the following two
    system files in Windows XP SP3:

    Font Subsetting DLL:
    fontsub.dll
    C:/WINDOWS\system32 \ fontsub.dll

    Embedded OpenType Font Engine for Windows:
    t2embed.dll
    C:/WINDOWS\system32 \ t2embed.dll

    So was it one of these two DLL files that your error message was
    referencing?

    FYI, I've installed this Update on 4 Windows XP SP3 machines without any
    crashing of IE.

    Is the Update still installed on your machine, or did you uninstall it?

    Have you tried downloading and installing the Update manually?

    Did you temporarily disable your real-time security application(s) before
    trying to install this update?

    Did you try Re-Registering the DLL file in question?


    Answering some(all) of the above questions might turn your post into a more
    positive experience for you, as well as help others in this group try to
    help you.

    Good luck,

    Donald Anadell

    Skeeter, are you or are you not interested in receiveing assistance?
    Hint: being rude will make it less likely for this to happen.

    Or maybe your intent was to warn us of a flaky update. If so, read on...

    Apparently there were two high-priority updates for Windows XP this past
    Tuesday:

    Security Update for Windows XP (KB972270)
    More info:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...3f-7660-40be-b7d5-7b0eec55e1cd&displaylang=en

    More info:

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS10-001.mspx

    and

    Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - January 2010 (KB890830)

    But we are not mindreaders. Many users wind up downloading *other*
    updates, too. For instance, this past Tuesday there were also two
    high-priority updates for Office 2003. There are always optional
    software and hardware updates also that some people choose to download.

    If you can isolate the issue you experienced to *one* update (for
    instance, KB972270), that would have been useful information. Then
    again, coincidence might have been at play, and it's possible the
    behavior you experienced was not due to the update. Although I run XP
    Home SP3, I use IE7, not IE8, so I cannot duplicate. Perhaps others can
    chime in.

    But calling people names (as you did in your response to VanguardLH) is
    very immature. Furthermore, it wouldn't hurt to use your shift key!

    It might seem that way to you, but millions upon millions are using XP, SP3
    with IE8, and there are no problems like the ones you report.

    I've been here for quite some time, my friend:

    http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/user/threads?user=PA Bear MS MVP

    Did you install KB972270 and/or KB890830 and/or KB955759 and/or
    KB976325...or...on 15 Jan-10?

    What was the DLL file in the error?

    Don't know anything about that update
    but if your machine works now...I guess I'd not fret too much about it

    LOL

    /tongue in cheek remark coming/


    Glad you were able to contact all of them...
    thus far I've only been able to contact a handful.

    Anyway , I've found that MS seems to customize their updates
    in such a way that they generate unique problems for every individual.


    No two problems alike.


    /end of sarcasm/


    Said as a joke of course...but some days it seems that way.

    sheesh
