Microsoft To Release Fixed Patch Next Week

On Tuesday, Microsoft will reissue the MS06-015 update, which has caused lockups and other problems with HP devices and some drivers.

Microsoft plans to re-release a patch ithat caused some snags and Internet Explorer lockups with older Hewlett-Packard devices and NVIDIA drivers.

On April 25th, Microsoft will issue a targeted re-release of the MS06-015 update. The fix will be available though Microsoft Update or automatically delivered to affected computers through Automatic Update, the company said.

"Microsoft has completed its initial investigation into issues involving older third party software that customers may have experienced after the installation of MS06-015," a spokesman said in a statement issued Thursday.

The patch impacted partners and customers using older Hewlett Packard Share-to-Web software and older NVIDIA drivers prior to version 61.94, Microsoft said.

Microsoft said existing customers who have applied the MS06-015 update without any problem should take no further action.

The company also said Microsoft's Knowledge Base contains article 918165, which lists the software this issue affects, as well as available workarounds such as Microsoft's recently-released registry key entries that correct the problem.
