    I still have it showing in my Programs and Features from 17th Sept. last year and didn't bother with the Disable-fixit, but as there have been a number of WUs since then, I assume it will have been overwritten and I haven't noticed any adverse effects.

    I'll probably just leave mine as it is.

    OK, thanks! I still wonder what happens if I delete that?

    As I applied the Fixit last September, what prompted you to apply it just a few weeks ago ?

    If you can still find the MS article then you could use the Unfix box which should remove it for you, as subsequent Windows Updates since that was released will have addressed that problem.

    That was only released at the time as an emergency patch.

    I only noticed the item in Programs and Features not so long ago. I have now disabled it and now it's not there.

    Thank you again!

    Can you post the URL for the disable and I may as well do mine.

    It's the URL you gave me in post #44, just click the "unfix" box.

    Are you running some sort of anti-malware or anti-phishing "protection" software? Norton was (is?) notorious for sticking its fingers into the gears when you click on a link in an email, causing exactly this behavior.

    Thanks for your ideas.... as you can see from post #38, the problem was solved with the ANVI software. I do have anti-malware now, though I did not a few months ago, but the problem existed even then. Now it was solved even with the anti-malware installed and running.
