Oooops, let’s try that one again! Microsoft to fix MS06-015 / KB908531



April 21st, 2006

According to the Microsoft Security Response Center blog, Microsoft are planning to release an updated version of the MS06-015 / KB908531.  This revised update will automate the manual registry key fix described here.

Here's what Stephen Toulouse has to say:

"On Tuesday April 25th, if you have not taken those actions but are having the problem, the update MS06-015 will be delivered to the machine through AU if configured, or through Microsoft Update or the Download Center if you want to install it manually.

I want to be real clear about that. When the update is re-released, it's going to be very much targeted to people who are having the problem, or people who have not installed MS06-015 yet. That means if you have already installed MS06-015 and are not having the problem, there's no action here for you. Windows Update, Microsoft Update, and Automatic Update will have detection logic built into them to only offer the revised update (which essentially includes the reg key fix) to those customers who either don't have MS06-015 or are having the problem."

So, if you've been holding back on installing this update because you fear trouble, hold back a little longer or install it and apply the patch if you have problems (or update/uninstall the affected applications - NVIDIA Drivers versions 61.94 and prior or the Hewlett Packard Share-to-web software).  If you are having problems then either apply the patch or wing it until Tuesday (or, again, update/uninstall the affected applications - NVIDIA Drivers versions 61.94 and prior or the Hewlett Packard Share-to-web software).
