Microsoft on Tuesday reissued the Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 Update Rollup to correct a range of embarrassing glitches haunting users of the enterprise-facing operating system.

The re-release comes less than three months after the software maker first shipped the Update Rollup with more than 50 security patches and system reliability fixes.

Immediately after the update shipped in June, Windows 2000 SP4 users complained that it broke third-party security applications and caused installation hang-ups.

According to a knowledge base article published by Microsoft Corp., the Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 v2 provides fixes for four major bugs, including two that returned specific error messages when the first iteration of the update was installed.

A third bug that caused "serious problems" when users attempted to modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor was also fixed.

The revised update also corrects a problem in the "Fastfat.sys" that blocked users from saving files from Microsoft Office programs directly to floppy disks. Continue At Source
