Known issues with this security update

  • After you install this security update, you may find that the preview from a Web camera (Webcam) stops unexpectedly. The preview stops when the system encounters a bad MJPEG frame. A bad MJPEG frame can be caused by random electrical noise or by some other hardware event.

    To work around this issue, stop and then restart the preview. If the problem continues to frequently occur, try to connect the camera directly to a USB port on the computer. For example, do not connect the camera to an external USB hub. Also, verify that any cables that are connected to the computer are in good working condition. For example, inferior or damaged cables may be more susceptible to receiving electrical noise.
  • After you install this update on a computer that is running Microsoft Windows 2000, you may experience one or both of the following issues:
    • You scan a system by using Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) 2.1 or by using a Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server. When you do this, the scan report may indicate that this update was successfully installed even though the update was not installed.
    • The reports from MBSA and from WSUS may differ about the status of this security update.
    These issues occur because of a detection issue with this security update.

    The Microsoft catalog that is used by WSUS and by MBSA was updated to resolve this detection issue. Therefore, a current scan correctly identifies the status of this update. If a scan indicates that you have to install security update 951698, we recommend that you install the update.
