This problem is not resolved if you restart your computer. To avoid this problem, you must remove the Outlook 98 E-mail Security Update before you upgrade to Outlook 2000. To fix the problem if you have already upgraded to Outlook 2000, run the Detect and Repair tool for the Outlook 2000 installation.

Updating Outlook 98 and Then Upgrading to Outlook 2000If you apply the security update to Outlook 98, and you then upgrade to Outlook 2000 or Outlook 2000 SR-1, the 2000 version of the security update is not automatically applied.

Issues That Affect Administrators and Deployment Scenarios
Multiple Users Are Not UpdatedIf you have a computer that is configured with multiple Windows profiles and you apply the security update to only one user, the security update is not applied when other users log on to the computer. To work around this limitation, you must run Setup again for each user.
