KB979306 and KB976662 updates on 2/24

After the automatic updates (windows xp), my computer was restarted and I
awoke to registry issues. I lost and had to get back my wireless internet
connection (linksys). I also lost my audio, and my tool bar is no longer the
blue it used to be with XP and is now tan. I am still struggling with the
MultiMedia driver that was lost that may or may not affect the sound. I
removed the two patches and got the internet back. I then re-installed them
and now if I go to the update page it just runs continuously searching my pc
for required updates. HELP!

Re: KB979306 and KB976662 updates on 2/24

Are you running WinXP SP2 or SP3?

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)?

Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
it)?

I am running Vista and have similar issues. My taskbar no longer shows
network, volume or power icons, and when I go to taskbar in control panel and
recheck the boxes, it stays only for awhile and then disappears again.

Also, windows explorer does not work properly. I am trying to install
drivers for a wireless printer and have the disk, but windows explorer will
not read my disk.

I have restarted the computer a number of times, but this does not help. I
would welcome your assistance!

I do have McAffee installed on my computer, and it is updated.

To avoid confusion, please begin a new thread about your specific problems.
State your IE version and full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista SP1;
Vista 64-bit SP2; Win7; Win7 64-bit) in your first post. Thank you.
