    I now restored my original settings, and the only thing I had to do to get IE starting again was to change Icon fonts from 17 to 18.
    Who would have thought that? Thanks again!
    But I still cannot change the tab settings into "showing on a seperate row". That doesn't bother me at all.
    So: Problem solved!

    Now, about copying the theme settings:

    What I do is exporting HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop into a reg file. (Using regedit) This reg file is useful to have when you mess up settings anyway....

    I saw the link that was put into my post about changing tab settings and search box.
    What I meant is:
    I can change the settings, but then IE doesn't start.
    In other words: IE only works if the tab settings are NOT set to be on a seperate row.
    So following the instructions of this link will break IE again!

    Apparently IE only breaks after this update if it was set to have tabs on a separate row before the update. You could uninstall the update, set IE to have tabs and the address bar on a single row, then reapply the update.

    After the update IE should open, but now have the tabs on a separate row again. My IE was using a single row before the update and worked fine after the update, but I did have to switch it back to a single row as I had it before the update.

    I think you are right. That's why most people are not affected by this.
    But you do not have to uninstall the update to be able to change the settings.
    You can change the tab settings in the registry as well:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MINIE
    ShowTabsBelowAddressBar = 0

    You can do this after installing the update as well. (Probably have to restart afterwards)

    I may have misunderstood, but didn't you say in post #22 that even with the registry fix you couldn't switch it back without breaking IE? I can switch between one or two rows without problems, but then being on one row before the update my IE wasn't broken by it.

    If I switch back now to "seperate row view" IE still doesn't start. Just tried it again.
    So if I should accidentally change the setting withing IE's menu, I have to use regedit to change it back again.
    I cannot use the "seperate row view" at all. Doesn't bother me though.

    But now that I think about it: On my second machine I had already changed the setting to "one row" before updating.
    Still got broken. So maybe you're not right after all :-)
    Confusing update this month, on that we can agree!

    Cheers

    Thanks all for the suggestions. Doing the registry edit fixed the problem for me in the end.

    Well i must have been born under a lucky star because i have no issues with IE NOW EDGE is another matter when ever i launch it i have to sit and wait for 20-30 sec first EDGE will stop responding i then have to wait for it to start responding again and its every time i launch it so perhaps i was not born under a lucky star but rather a pile of lets say rubble's.
    I only use EDGE to stream from C MORE PLAY but the freezing is getting annoying hope MS get a fix out asap
