Hopefully it will! That will be a relief for many.

As you can imagine this is supposed to correct a vunerability in Windows itself and would leave a great number of people in an awkward position.

As for testing it someone a little more advanced and running a temp install on a VM or an old spare case still onhnad would be the best candidate for something like that. That would keep things isolated entirely where security tests could be performed.

Yesterday I downloaded the update on Windows 7 Home Premium with no problems. I didn't have the work around. I have run 3 security programs after down loading the update also with no problems. I'm happy to say M/S was quick with this one. I hope they keep up with the quick updates. Thats why I check for updates a couple times a day, it only takes seconds.

All I needed here was the system restart when 3 including the fix went right on. Two were simply the typical updates seen about every other month along with the one seen monday.

Well... I risked myself, but worked fine so far... I installed the patch on Windows XP SP3, Windows 7 Home Premium x64 and Windows 7 Professional x64 (Desktop/laptop)... Just a question, Do I need this patch for XP mode on my laptop?

See ya!!!

Well since I trust MS to do the right thing, I now have a warm and fussy feeling again.

I'll be waiting to see what all that entails next week for sure mainly out of curiosity. But I thought I would pass that along here when coming across that.
