Do you know which part(s) of the "updates" that did the "hosing"?
I've currently a bunch of updates waiting to be installed:
. Cumulativ Security Update for Internet Explorer for Windows XP (KB912812)
. Cumulativ Security Update for Outlook Express for Windows XP (KB911567)
. Security Update for Windows XP (KB908531)
. Security Update for Windows XP (KB911562)
. Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - April 2006 (KB890830)

Although updates caused (obvious) troubles up to now, I am somewhat
reluctant to install the current ones.
I don't use IE or OE, and might not need the last one (Windows
Malicious Software Removal Tool). Maybe a "Windows Removal Tool"
would be a good idea...

I'm running WinXP Pro SP2, with NVIDIA GeForce 6600.
