    In Woody's column re Oct, 09 critical updates, he refers to kb 976749 & kb 974455....Saying---976749 must be installed first before installing 974455...Otherwise, I/E will be broken....

    In my list of updates to be installed, I do have 974455...But, I don't have 976749 being offered...

    What should I do...???

    Thanx

    According to MSKB976749:
    Important Do not install this update if you have not installed security update 974455. If you install this update without first installing security update 974455, Internet Explorer may not work correctly. If this occurs, uninstall this update, install security update 974455, and then reinstall this update.
    Which I read as the opposite!

    Woody's online page here reads: ...Knowledge Base article 976749 describes the carnage. If you’ve already applied MS09-054/KB 974455 (but you haven’t, right?), then you need to apply KB 976749. But if you mistakenly apply the patch to the patch (KB 974455) before you apply the patch itself (MS09-054/KB 976749), you break Internet Explorer.... - which is what both Leif & I understand M$ to be saying.

    Why this is, I cannot say... The page that Leif linked to has (AFAICU) instructions as to how to download the patch without support from Windows Update.

    When in doubt about updates, wait for MS to resolve the issues before installing the update(s) in question.
