Windows update KB2846071 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have recently had a problem because of  windows update KB2846071  on Windows 7 Pro

    My spell checker in my mail client (Incredimail) stopped working. While in contact with the manufacturers of the client it was suggested that I uninstall KB2846071 as that could be causing the problem.  So I did and the issue went away. Spell check is back working fine.  However Windows Update still wants to install the problem update. Now I have to be bothered with Windows Update bugging me about installing it again.  So do i install the update and not have spell check or be annoyed by windows Update.

    I have been told that this update also breaks the spell check of Firefox.  

    Whats up with that.

  • According to the release bulletin KB2846071 fixed some memory corruption problems and a Japanese character encoding problems.

    From my experience, there are also undocumented changes to the IE Document Object Model (DOM). Properties that were working as documented, no longer return valid results. These undocumented changes are clearly bugs that were not meant to be released.

    I'd give Firefox a go with the update, as they use different DOM implementations.
