1. You may not be able to log on to a Web site or complete an Internet transaction after you install the 832894 (MS04-004) security update. For example, when you submit your user name and password to an SSL-secured Web site by using a form on a HTTPS Web page, you may receive an HTTP 500 (Internal Server Error) Web page. This problem may occur after you apply the 832894 security update (MS04-004) or the 821814 hotfix on a computer that runs WinXP, W2K, ME, or Win9x, [Q831167].
2. Please read through this forum "thread."
I ocassionally have to access a secure VA web site and have no problem logging in. However, one particular page that should be accessable by just clicking on a link instead opens a page that says I must first log in. This same page shows that I am logged in.
I contacted their tech support and was informed that I need to download and install Q831167.exe but every time I attemp to install it I get a warning that
"This update requires Internet Explorer 6.0 Service Pack 1 to be installed."
However IE 6.0 SP1 is installed.
I've never experienced this problem with any other secure site. Been researching the problem a couple days until I'm dizzy from going in circles. According to MS Q831167.exe quals for support as it repairs some other udpate and they were supposed to get back to me Monday, but nothing.
Really don't want to DL/Install/learn another browser not knowing if it would even help for this one problem. So I'm hoping someone out there in cyber land can help me fix this.
I'm using IE6.0 SP1 and Windows ME.
Thanks Have a great day.
