    wow i broke something!! lol

    Im sure it wasnt the script, just how i set it up in the GPO.

    I set it to run on computer start up..should it have been user?

    When computer loaded my Admin desktop, icons and all were behind the login box! Very intresting indeed!!!

    It should be in computer startup; as it applies the policy during startup you see 'Running startup scripts..' and the hotfix window thing will appear on top, do its thing and go away again.

    Don't know why you got icons behind your login dialog, an effect of that hotfix maybe?

    It was wierd, i never saw the "running start up scripts". Just went straight to ctrl alt del screen.

    It was kinda like the script kicked in half way through me being logged on....

    @ powdarrmonkey,
    I have some black magic for this; do you want it?
    Do you have any black magic that makes the patch work? I've deployed this patch to an affected room of XP SP3 boxes but i'm still seeing the issue

    Ah, that's more like it - there is a group policy for running startup and logon scripts synchronously, which forces them to have been executed before a user can log on. By default, they are run in the background while the user does their thing, which saves time but can cause confusion when magical things just happen...

    I'm running the patch manually and it finishes installing but the lsasrv.dll file is the same and the flaw exists still.

    Old file should be 5.1.2600.5834
    New file should be 5.1.2600.5827

    WSUS 3.0 is definitely the best method to use as it uses BITS to deploy updates. As the name suggests packages are slowly sent in bits minimising network traffic. It also gives useful feedback as to what hotfixes are installed

    WSUS is fine if you're deploying things that are in it, but some significant hotfixes are only distributed if you ask for them, or are published but for a specific problem and so not available in WSUS. For these out-of-band patches, you need some kind of mechanism to install it only once.
