There should be a KB (knowledge base) web page associated with the fix. I would expect that to answer your question.

Well i just installed the update and although it took a while to bring my desktop up (Had to do a ctrl+alt+del and start task manager), all seems fine and my shortcuts still work fine.

Lucky.

Thank you Microsoft!

I also installed the update for x64. The funny thinks is that they call the fix "Important" even though it's "Critical".

If you installed the work around provided by Microsoft Fix 50486, you can undo the changes made by the Fix it solution by using Microsoft Fix it 50487 available in Microsoft KB 2286198.
