Internet Explorer patch requires reboot

The Internet Explorer (IE) patch was pushed through Windows Software Update Services (WSUS) last night. Users may need to reboot to get it (this may take 10-20 minutes).

Some users have experienced an Outlook issue after the install. To fix this they will need an administrator to log in and repair Office 2007 via Add/Remove programs or run the following command line (either of these options takes up to 30 minutes).

Using Start / Run enter the following:
MsiExec.exe /fpecaums {90120000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE}
