    Every other day, I get a notification that I need to
    download a critical update in Windows--823559. I've
    downloaded and installed this several times, but I keep
    getting a notification that this same critical update
    needs to be downloaded and installed. I have Windows 98.
    Which, when I looked up this patch, doesn't seem to even
    apply to Windows 98, only Windows 2000 and others. Any
    information would be greatly appreciated.
    I also keep getting a response that says something like
    Internet Explorer has performed an illegal operation and
    will shut down. Can anyone advise me on what to do?
    Thank you.

  2. I think you mean KB823579 and if so Win9x/ME are NOT affected.

    What makes you say that? 823559 is a valid security update.

  4. Because KB823559 DOES have a Win98/ME fix and is based upon a HTML Buffer Overflow problem.
