This link should answer most of your questions:

Install the patch this way:
Download using the Windows Update Catalog, #1 on this link:

Reboot
Disable all unnecessary applications including but not limited to anti
virus, spyware blockers, internet enhancers etc.
Double the download and follow the prompts to install.
Reboot

6, consistently crash. IE6 crashes when I go to tools/internet
options/settings/view files or view objects! OE6 is slow and hangs.
After I did a system restore, I dis-abled Help and Support since that
is where the problem lies. Everything is fine now that the update is
gone.

Thanks for your reply. I already read everything at the microsoft security site and I still would like to know how much user input is involved in order for this exploit to occur? It says that a malicious site could ask an unsuspecting user to type a series of commands or input something....what?

My previous problem seems to be a combination of 840374 and kazza resurrection 0.075. I did a system restore and installed each separately and the problem occurs with both or either one of these programs on my system
I am back to the state of restore that seems fine, but now I am confused. Do you think there is an other problem
I hope I don't have to re-install windows!

Ok, it seems that I still didn't fix my problem as the same symtoms appear but it takes longer. What could be the cause?
When I try to re-install IE6 it says that I already have a newer version and will not let me install. How do I do this?

The information on that link as well as links on that page may be all
Microsoft is releasing public.

As for the other, Kazaa generally has loads of spyware and for that as
well as other reasons, I will not have it near my computer.
So you can guess what my suggestion would be.
