Does anyone have a patch for  IE7 the following error: "Press spacebar or Enter to activate and use this control"?

I found the patch indicated in KB917425 but that only works for IE6.  Maybe I am missing it but I can't find the patch for IE7.

I looked several times and do not see that patch applied.  I need to roll the fix out to lots of workstations so is there a patch that was put out like there was for IE6?

Hmm - this is supposedly the update that brought it about: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912945

According to http://www.cssbeauty.com/skillshare/comments.php?DiscussionID=482
"in order to avoid this problem all that a web developer needs to do is embed the object via external script files."

Microsoft lost a lawsuit so we have to live with it until web developers code in the workaround.
