Office (excel,word) hangs when paste html from IE or load saved html

Bulletin #Q318184 in Msft does not solve the problem.
BUG Excel May Stop Responding When You Open an HTML File Streamed From a Web Site
Can you help me?
I made this note to Msft Supp (will they answer?)

Excel 2000 : When I open an HTML (saved from web or Copy and Paste from IE6,IE5) Office tries to DOWNLOAD (from Internet) the images that are not made by itself. This may hang application for minutes. If I do not allow internet access (FireWall) then it realy hangs.
When I am NOT connected to Internet I can paste/open an HTML with no hanging and all images are in the resulted XLS.
1. The resolution says to CHANGE the HTML code - this is NOT the case when I OPEN an HTML or copy/paste from IE
2. Is there any "flag/register" to avoid Excel looking in Internet for "Loading pictures from Web pages not created in Excel"; I disabled this flag in Options-General-Web Options-General, restarted PC and still does the same.
3. I checked SR1a and SP3 for Office - did not see this bug fix....
4. In case it fix it - how would I know if I have this updates or not? I checked most pages and did not find how.. please send 4 answers to
