Track Changes Dates Reset on Save As in Word 2008

If you regularly use the Save As feature to create new drafts while working in Word 2008, you might notice that with Track Changes enabled, previously time-stamped comments and edits have their times reset to the Save As date and time. Work around this by sticking with your original file, but using Save As (or just File > Duplicate in the Finder) to make backup copies.

Internet Explorer 4.51 & Outlook Express 5.01 Fix Problems

Send Article to a Friend

Microsoft Corporation has released Internet Explorer 4.51 and Outlook Express 5.01, which address issues with Web site and email attachment security, as well as JavaScript problems that occur using the two products in combination. The two updates are available together as an 11.4 MB download, or separately (6.4 MB and 9.4 MB, respectively) if you only use one or the other. Microsoft has published a brief FAQ on these releases.

In a nutshell, Internet Explorer 4.51 includes new SSL version 3 security certificates from VeriSign. Some certificates which originally shipped with Internet Explorer 4.5 expire 01-Jan-00, at which point it becomes impossible for Explorer to establish secure connections to some Web sites (such as online merchants or financial services). Both Internet Explorer 4.51 and Outlook Express 5.01 offer improved support for version 3 certificates that should allow automatic updating in the future. Installing Explorer 4.51 is merely a matter of drag & drop in the Finder, though a few people have had troubles; see TidBITS Talk for details and fixes. Netscape browsers earlier than version 4.06 may also have the same problem with certificate expiration.

Outlook Express 5.01 patches a security loophole first reported in mid-November whereby attachments could automatically be downloaded to a user's hard disk by being embedded in a specifically composed MIME HTML (MHTML) message. These items would appear in a user's Download folder without the user's knowledge; if a user launched one of these items and it happened to be a malicious application, damage could occur. Outlook Express 5.01 protects users by not downloading any material embedded in an MHTML message that can't be rendered as part of the message. Outlook Express 5.01 ships with an updated JavaScript shared library that's also used by Internet Explorer; the version that shipped with Outlook Express 5.0 could cause Internet Explorer to have problems with certain secure Web sites. This problem only impacted users running both Internet Explorer 4.5 and Outlook Express 5.0 on the same Macintosh. Be careful using Outlook Express's drag & drop installation feature: it's all too easy to delete your existing mail database if you simply replace your existing Outlook Express folder.
