IE 7 issues pushed via WSUS on Windows XP SP2 machines

By ·
I have pushed IE7 with other IE7 updates and security patches along with a security patch KB950759 via WSUS 3.0. I have removed IE7 from some machines for project requirement but it has started creating issues with Excel(VB errors with hexadecimal numbers like &H&000405 (unspecified error)while opening Microsoft Office Excel 2003). I have identified it by removing only this patch on two machines and it stopped throwing errors when we open Excel 2003 files.

Background : IE7 was removed from some client machines of developers that require IE6 as per their code requirement. After installing IE 7 I have got several errors like ?lookup key was not found in any active activation context? while browsing any sites. In this case I have to reinstall IE7 from the downloaded exe. The client machines are Windows XPSP2 with IE7 removed and restored back to IE6.

Can anybody please suggest the cause and workaround?
