Where does Internet Explorer 7 Update version 0; 3283 come from?

I have a terminal server running Windows Server 2003 R2 Std (32 bit) with Internet Explorer 7 Update version 0; 3283. We have a number of other terminal server of the same configuration but the IE 7 update version is 0 only.

We have an internally developed web application which makes use of java applets. These run successfully on all servers except for the one with IE7 update version 3283. I've not been able to find much information on this update or where it came from (presumably Windows Updates?). I need to roll back to IE7 without this update. Before I re-install IE7 completely, does anyone know anything about this update, how it gets installed, or better yet how can I remove it without a re-install?

If I re-install IE7 I would want to prevent this update from being applied, so if anyone has any info that could help, I'd be most grateful.

when you do the Windows updates run them manually and de-select the update you don't like. This will hide the update.

The problem I have is that none of the updates refer to "update 3283" so I don't know which one is installing it.

I don't see much on 3283 other than a couple of really old articles.

http://web.archive.org/web/20020604032758/www.walbeehm.com/win98upd.html - claims the update is about - 3283   javi386.cab and msjavx86.exe (The more recent versions of these only!)

I've not been able to find an answer to this so will just reinstall IE7 and see what happens.

Didn't find an acceptable answer to the problem, but re-installing did away with the issue.
