  1. 978829 is for Vista and Server 2008, not XP. Moreover the hotfix-request link is dead ("The KB article has no public hotfixes").

    978411 is for XP, but the hotfix-request link is similarly dead.

    Same for 977018.

    I did one have an email alias for PSS North America, but "this email address is no longer monitored".

    I guess if you don’t have a big-bucks support contract with MS, you are out of luck.
