An automatic Microsoft upgrade that has crashed popular word proccesing package Word which is part of Microsoft’s Office 2007 offering has been pumped to millions of computers.
Overnight Microsoft has pumped 11 upgrades for Vista and Office to millions of computers and on two seperate computers both at home and in my office the upgrade has nobbled both Word and my default email package. Microsoft say that they are investigating the issues.
Among the patches distributed by Microsoft overnight were Microsoft Office Service Pack 1, Security updates for Microsoft Windows,Microsoft Outlook updates and security updates for CAPICOM.
Among the problems we experienced one was unable to scroll pages up or down, right click a mouse or paste copy to a page. When one goes to closean affected page an error message pops up saying that Word has “Stopped Working”.
The latest Microsoft security bulletin says that of the 11 upgrades six of are deemed “critical” while five are deemed “important.” One bulletin, suggested that a majority of the “critical” patches affect Microsoft Office, two critical patches include users of Office for Mac 2004, one affects Visual Basic 6.
