  1. MS have reissued the update KB2412171 on January 11th. It has just caused my Outlook to break, it keeps asking me for passwords every time I open Outlook. I removed the update via add/remove programs and the problem went away.

  2. I have also discovered that the missing AutoArchive issue happens with KB2509470. Try uninstalling that if uninstalling KB2412171 doesn’t work, or it isn’t already installed.
