Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
 
 

Has anyone tried it on their machine yet?

It looks like it may infact completely disable nearly all third party software on your machine the way I read the billitin. I.e. I don't think this is a patch that just anyone should install. But if someone has a spare machine with some third party software on it (FF, Photoshop etc) thatthey want to sacrefice... would be good to know before spreading this URL around.

Hi fseal, I did not yet applyed this patch either on a Windows 7 x64, but did the first recommendation by changing the registry setting from the first "Quick Fix" MS bulletin provided in the two places mentionned since two days ago, no big issues at the moment.

I guess the patch will only change the registry settings also.

Got no probs with my apps like PowerDVD9 ultra, IE8, The Gimp x64, Media Maker 8 plus WinLiveMail, most of the MS Apps, etc...

I mean they do oppened like usual and "save as" like usual..

might try soon i saved some stuff of mine this Download package x64.
