Windows 7 Ultimate x86 SP1

There is one mitigation I discovered while researching this exploit. Unfortunately it is somewhat complicated. To prevent the flaw from being exploited you can perform the following actions:

As an Administrator open Regedit and browse to HKEY_USERS\[SID of each user account]\EUDC
Right-click EUDC and choose permissions
Choose the user whose account you are modifying and select Advanced
Select Add and then type in the user's name and click OK
Click the Deny checkbox for Delete and Create Subkey
Click all the OKs and Apply buttons to exit.
