    Hello Angel,

    I expect it's just me, but I can never find the exact location from where to download the patch/fix. I read the bulletins (as I have the one you posted here) but then don't seem able to find the actual download.

    Help!!!

    Many thanks,
    T2:)

    Hello there,

    Thanks vpn. I've downloaded the patch. I've been having trouble accessing Windows Update from Windows Start option, get a blank page with "done but with errors on the page" at the bottom and have not been able to use it for some time. Had heard there was a problem with the site.

    Hello hewee,

    I will try the Update site again later, thanks. But for over a month now, each time I access it, I get a blank page with a message "Done, but with errors on page". Nothing I have tried gets me through to the site. Are you able to open it? I have tried reloading Windows and all sorts of things, but it's not working. I will also try it with other browsers.

    T2:)
