windows 2008 r2 64 bit update 2670838 causing problems with FLASH clients running XP IE8 Flash 11.4.x RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • ANYBODY ELSE EXPERIEINCE THESE PROBLEMS ?

    We did install this (UPDATE) on our Web Server(windows 2008 R2 64bit). Which delivers extensive FLASH,VIDEO, LARGE JPGS,XML files and MP3 Files with CLIENTS all integrated with .NET 4.0.

    IT APPEARS this update is affecting machines which have windows XP; FLASH 11.4x(active X 11.4 to 11.6) and uses Internet Explorer 8 (in a citrix thin client environment). SO FOR NOW; WE are going to uninstall the UPDATE in our PRODUCTION SERVERS and work closely with our customers to see if "removing the update" corrects the problems. 

    TO NOTE: It maybe impacting other clients to; but we have not been able to sort through all logs yet...

    TO NOTE: windows 7 clients in general appeared to be virtually unimpacted....

    It is weird; that a server update would be impacting FLASH clients; but we are out of ideas and this is the only thing which changed.

     On Tuesday this particular client was running at 100% capacity on over 30 machines.  Immediately on Wednesday over 50% of their clients were experiencing problems.  Thursday and Friday was not much better.

     I am hoping the uninstall worked properly and put our server back to the STATE before the udpate was applied....

    thanks,

    ANY OTHER IDEAS WOULD BE GREATLY APPROCIATED..
