A number of people have asked me (and seem to be asking for) to make a patch file that automatically applies the Windows registry fix for the recent [tag]MS06-015[/tag] / [tag]KB908531[/tag] issue. Rumors are that Microsoft have a patch that they send to some of thse affected but I can't find it on their site.
Well, ask and you shall receive ... here it is.
This is a plain text file that contains the updated registry information (feel free to look inside it if you want to make sure I've not done anything out of the ordinary here).
Installation instructions are easy:
- Download it (here it is again).
- Right-click on it and choose Merge
- Click Yes
- Click OK
Disclaimer - Use this fix "at your own risk". This should work just fine (because it's just a safer way of applying the fix that Microsoft already have for this problem) but if things go wrong then remember the bit where I said "at your own risk"!
