SYMPTOMS
If you use the Multilingual Menus and Dialog Boxes for Internet Explorer with a non-English locale, some menu or dialog box items in Internet Explorer may revert to English after you apply Cumulative Patch MS02-023 or MS02-015. For example, the items on a shortcut menu in Internet Explorer Document view may revert to English.
CAUSE
This issue is caused by a version mismatch for Shdoclc.dll. Shdoclc.dll (the Shell Document Object and Control library) is a resource-only library that is used by Internet Explorer to store localized items such as menus, dialog boxes, and strings.

If you use Multilingual Menus and Dialog Boxes for Internet Explorer, Internet Explorer loads Shdoclc.dll from the %Program Files%\Internet Explorer\MUI\LCID folder. For example, if you use the French locale, Shdoclc.dll is loaded from the %Program Files%\Internet Explorer\MUI\0409 folder. The version of Shdoclc.dll that is located in the %Program Files%\Internet Explorer\MUI\LCID folder must match the version that is located in the %Windir%\System32 folder. If there is a version mismatch, the "default" Shdoclc.dll in the %Windir%\System32) folder is used.

Cumulative Patch MS02-023 or MS02-015 updates the Shdoclc.dll file that is located in the %Windir%\System32 folder. This produces a version mismatch with the dynamic-link libraries (DLLs) that are located in the %Program Files%\Internet Explorer\MUI\LCID folder.
WORKAROUND
After you install Cumulative Patch MS02-023 or MS02-015 on a Multilingual Menus and Dialog Boxes for Internet Explorer configuration, you must also update the Shdoclc.dll file that is located in the %Program Files%\Internet Explorer\MUI\LCID folder.

For example, if you are using the English version of Microsoft Windows 2000 MultiLanguage Version with Multilingual Menus and Dialog Boxes for Internet Explorer configured for German and French:
  1. Install Cumulative Patch MS02-023 (the English version).
  2. Download and extract German and French Cumulative Patch MS02-023.
  3. Copy the extracted German version of the Shdoclc.dll file to the in %Program Files%\Internet Explorer\MUI\040C folder.
  4. Copy the extracted French version of the Shdoclc.dll file to the %Program Files%\Internet Explorer\MUI\0409 folder.
