    Hi all

    Hope someone on here can help me with this, I have a big hammer if not and intend to threaten the PC with it...:mad:

    My 13 year old son downloaded the Windows updates (using Windows XP), and left them installing whilst he went off to school. He came home to find it all done, pc restarted etc... but now when he tries to open Windows IE (tabs version) he gets the following (see attached screenshot) error message;

    File Download - Security Warning
    Unknown File type, 2.64kb​

    I 'cancel' this window. I have run an AVG and Adaware (both up to date) and they have found nothing. Please help! Am not completely pc phobic and should be able to follow most instructions.. (but please speak slowly if you dare mention 'The Registry' with me - round these parts it's where people get married...).

    Cheers Rebecca :eek:

    I have virtually the same problem. In fact, I was a little suprised to find that I could find no information on this anywhere on the Internet when it first happened to me last last Thursday (May 10). I have since uninstalled the update twice, and uninstalled IE7 three times (reverting back to IE6). Each time I then try reinstalling to no avail. When I reinstall the update... *BAM*; I get the error message again.

    IE6 seems to work perfectly and IE7 works without that update.

    I use Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition v10.x
