Got it to 6,6Mb today, installed with no probs whatsoever on x64. Rebooted and shorcuts still works fine.

Ah, I didn't check the x64 size, but the x86 size is 4.3.

When checking for updates I saw only three listed along with a separate optional nic card update. Two were typical security updates for the 64bit and one for the malware removal tool. In fact there hasn't been many in the last two months to mention.

I thought I might have had problem caused by it but PEBKAC. No problems on three computers (1 XP, 2 7 x64).

Has anyone tested it by running the malware? LOL. THAT would be the true test.

I doubt anyone would want to disable all protections they presently have on their main OS for a chance look to see unless they were planning to wipe a drive already if not simply seeing a fresh install of 7 go on.

Here the combo av/antispyware/firewall would likely block it long before any the update offers would be tasked.

I was being sarcastic. Yet, one need not worry if the fix works, right?
