Just download it again. It won't hurt to install it twice.

It discusses Windows 7 Pre-Beta - hence this notice.

You could also check Add/Remove Programs on Windows XP (and show installed updates), or Programs | View Installed Updates on Windows Vista) to view installed updates and see if the update is listed there. It should show as something like "Security Update for Microsoft Windows (KB958644)" on Windows Vista - I don't have a Windows XP system handy so I can't check the name there, but it should have the KB article number in it if memory serves.

Yeah..but Google would find it faster. And heaven forbid if Jazzy gets on one of the pages Microsoft has redone. They don't look right on Fx and have gigantic horizontal scroll bars, text on top of text, etc. The pages used to look fine on Fx but not the new ones.

The pages look fine in FF but of course that assumes less aggressive Proxo filters

I don't see how Proxo could have anything to do with the gigantic horizontal scrollbar on the new pages or the text on top of text. I can't even get there on IE6. I believe it to be the Silverlight conversion which, while I actually like Silverlight, I think is a horrible thing to do to support pages and TechNet. Those are the last places that something like Flash Player and Silverlight should be foisted.

Re: where can I find patch MS08-07

Yeah, I was just going to say before I read your post that is more likely the cause. Microsoft thinks everyone who uses Windows is either under 25 with perfect vision or blind. They don't seem to make much adjustment for the crowd inbetween those two extremes. Being Microsoft, and being support and technical pages, I think they should take extreme care to make those Microsoft pages easily readable by all. What they choose to do at MSN.com or even on general Microsoft pages is less of a concern to me and if they want to require 6pt font for msn I don't really care as I can find plenty of similar sites (assuming that sort of site even appeals to me). However, there is only one Technet and one Microsoft support site.
