@ Mike -

Thanks very much. I'm one of those people who usually waits a week or two before installing the monthly pile of updates from MSFT - However, I'm concerned about these random updates which occasionally appear because I always wonder if there is some especially-urgent reason to apply them immediately.

In any case, I downloaded and installed the update without incident.

Thanks for your help.
