Latest Update causes IE and Firefox to bomb out on initial open
Internet Security LiveUpdate was over 350 MB. Now, neither Internet Explorer nor FireFox will open. They bomb out when trying. This machine is an XP machine, and was working yesterday. Since it affected both browsers, I suspected NIS. I was right. I uninstalled it, and reinstalled it without virus signatures, and then installed an older IntelligentUpdater file to get some signatures in there. The browsers were both back in business. Ran LiveUpdate, and again, once fully updated, the browsers were broken again.
My CPU cannot handle SSE2 code. Maybe the latest LiveUpdate installs a bad patch for me. Normally a LiveUpdate is only a few MB. The latest one is over 350MB. Is it possible to run an IntelligentUpdater file and only do the virus signature updates? My older file contains signatures that are too old for safe web use. I can get the latest one, but uninstalling and reinstalling NIS is a pain, if I have to take the patch(es) too.
