Microsoft Reissues Outlook 2007 Update

After a blunder in December over an update for Outlook 2007 which caused slow loading, connection issues and automatic archiving, Microsoft has re-released the update fixing the original issue without the major side effects. If you are using Office 2007 and Outlook 2007, be sure to grab this update.

Microsoft has pulled the plug on updates before. In April, it retracted a patch for Windows 2000 — which at the time was still supported — over what it called “quality issues.” And in early 2008, the company yanked an update designed to prep Windows Vista for Service Pack 1 (SP1) after users flooded support forums with tales of endless reboots.
