Hi, this is Kieron, the MSRC Program Manager responsible for Internet Explorer.

On Tuesday we released Knowledge Base article KB946627, which highlighted a known issue with Internet Explorer 6 on Windows XP Service Pack 2 after applying MS07-069 Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (942615). The article documented a workaround, which required a registry setting change.

Since then, the Internet Explorer team has been working to release an automated workaround application of the registry setting discussed in KB946627.

We have updated Knowledge Base article KB946627 so that it points to the automated workaround. It has also been made available via Windows Update and Automatic Update for all Internet Explorer 6 customers on Windows XP Service Pack 2.

Customers who are affected by the known issue after installing MS07-069 Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (942615) should apply 946627 or run Windows Update
