    New threats to Internet Explorer 6 and 7

    By Susan Bradley

    The most important news this Patch Tuesday was not about a new patch, but the lack of one.

    Microsoft announced that it is investigating public reports of new security threat to Internet Explorer 6 and 7. No IE patch came with the advisory, but the company did include a workaround.

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    Beware the MicrosoftFixIt 50386 for the IEPEERS.DLL file as linked from this article to Microsoft. I applied this fix on both mine & my wife's computer and forgot about it. Several days later I realized we could no longer print from Internet Explorer (v.7) nor from Outlook!
    Only after much Googling and research did I stumble accross the FixIt file I downloaded, only to remember it. I went back to the Microsoft site and unistall the Fix. Now I can print again!
    Microsoft broke the fix!
