it wasn't answered in the other post because that was about a sound card driver. The image was suppose to be much larger but apperently this forum doesn't allowing the posting of images i will repost it now.

Did you look for and try those too?

Microsoft issued a few patches after that gaffe'd release. The patches are readily available.

Then you need to roll back before Microsoft's fix.

Sorry to hear they didn't fix it proper but you'll find many posts about this. It appears that we'll be seeing many posts like yours (and we are.)

There can be an issue that I have only encountered once. One person had been using Norton or another registry fix program. It complained about a missing DLL. They had fixed it by copying the dll to another directory. While I wrote that fix was likely to spell trouble it finally did later as the Microsoft patch only updated the one in the directory Microsoft installed it to. The old version of the dll was still floating around in the wrong directory and causing problems.

Sadly I'm not aware if you did anything like that but we all know which company created the issue.
