Problems with MS03-042 (KB826232) patch?
From: Jerry Heidtke (jheidtkeFMLH.EDU)

On a variety of computers ranging from Windows 2000 SP2 to SP4 plus all
previous patches, whenever the KB826232 patch is installed, then other
patches/service packs/whatever is installed, while attempting to remove
the KB826232 patch results in warning messages that whatever was
installed after this patch may no longer work.
We found this because we always test backout procedures before deploying
patches to the entire enterprise.
For example, on one computer that had Windows 2000 SP2, we installed
KB826232 and then the other critical patches from 10/15. We then
installed SP4. When attempting later to uninstall KB826232, we get a
warning that Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player, and other patches
installed after KB826232 might be non-functional if we proceeded. We
tested Windows Media Player and it was, in fact, non-functional (it
could download a video clip and display that it was playing, it just
couldn't display any video... a minor inconvenience I guess).
The same symptoms were found on a freshly installed Win2k with SP4 and
IE6 SP1, and no other software installed.
Has anyone else found any issues with this patch?
