What is happening after the latest MS critical updates ??!!!!!!!!

I know it may be illogical but I have had 3 computers have major issues since 
I did the latest MS updates

1) An XP client gets a memory error every time they exit IE6 -  replaced RAM 
same problem - if I remove updates error goes away

2) An XP client completely crashed - looks like hard disk error

3) Our software mirrored SBS2000 server has error on mirrored drive !!!!! 
first time in 3 years !!!!

4) a seach on the international Proquest database causes error when a search 
is done - not all the time - just occasionally - never happened before the 
updates !

Call me paraniod but this has all happened in the past 2 days since the 
updates were done - anyone else with similar issues ??

Yes, the memory errors on closing some app's im seeing after recent 
updates ... the main one seems to be act v6 - a memory error every time 
app is exited.

Have you called PSS and reported this?  Issues with security patches are 
a free call.

Updating from Microsoft Update
3 replies , 10/13/2006, 11:11:39 PM
Is there an issue with updating SBS2K from the Microsoft update site? I've just completed a new install of SBS and manually applied W2K SP4, SP4 rollup, and IE6. When visiting Microsoft Update it advised that I needed some OS updates (KB842773 and Windows Installer 3.1). They consistently failed with error 0x80004002. Manual installation from Microsoft download worked OK, and now it looks like the update site is downloading and installing OK.

How do you update a path to a movie, without using the 'Package for CD' command, or by reinserting the movie into the ppt file? I tried accessing the 'Movie Options' dialogue box, but it wouldn't allow me to edit the pathname.

Update SUM & AVERAGE
2 replies , 3/9/2006, 5:21:28 PM
I have a worksheet the I use for monthly totals. For example, columns B thru M are for Jan, Feb, Mar, etc. - In column N are the totals =SUM(B8:M8) and in column O are the averages =AVERAGE(B8:I8) Every month I have to update many rows with the current average ranges. I use the fill handle, but it still is something that I would hope could be automated. Is this possible to do? For example, once I enter the raw data into the column B, is there a formula to recognize that data and update the SUM & AVERAGE column? Thank you, Karen

Update chart with new row - not working in 007
3 replies , 2/24/2007, 12:47:46 AM
I have a stacked area chart that I have been updating for years. The X axis is date and I add a new date row weekly. In previous versions of Excel, to update the chart each week I could simply select the new row of data and then drag and drop it onto the chart. That doesn't work with Excel 2007 (it copies or moves the selected data). I also tried the 'Select Data' dialog, but it says "The data range is too complex to be displayed. If a new range is selected it will replace all of the series in the series panel." The chart date range in that dialog is blank. (I use a simple rectangular range, but it is pretty big (AZ x 508)). So I don't see a way to add the new row of data into the existing chart. Thanks for any suggestions. -- Scott McPhillips [VC++ MVP]

I'm using Excel 2002. I have one workbook that has links to many files. The destination workbook and all the source files are located in the same directory of the same server. When I open the file and select "update", I receive #VALUE! errors. However, when I concurrently open the source files, the destination file links then update. I have checked the status of all the links and they report OK. Any suggestions on how I can get the destination file to update without having to open the source files? Thank you.

Hello SQL forum readers, I have a customer using Ms SQL Server 2000 SP3 installed on optical RAID-5 Disk Array (IBM Fast200 SAN). After a disk failure his production db was corrupted and since the failed disk was replaced, cust. restored a valid backup in order to support his business operations (with one day transcations loss). We have dome a lot of troubleshooting and investigation (traces, logs, dumps) in order to identify what caused the corruption. But now, cust. faces low performance problems. I have already suggested to use additionally the following options : A) Auto Options: Auot create statistics Auto update statistics B) Recovery Options: Recursive Triggers I would be much appreciated If I could have any advise regararding any additional db option setting that could assist : a) What about Quoted Identifiers or other SQL option? b) What about Torn Page Detection (recovery option) c) Any other cursor options that could assist? Is there additional MEM/CPU overhead by enabling those options? I have also advised cust, to execute the command SET SHOWPLAN_ALL in order to gather details abour executed statements Anything else I can do? Any advise will be much appreciated. Thanks in Advance Regards, Nick Dakoronias IBM Athens/Greece
