Good policy,
If Microsoft wishes to recall the update so be it, although they can not reproduce the issues people are having,
I've got it on a 64 bit and 32 bit system without any issues,
Uninstalling an update when they all loaded at the same time can cause unexpected problems,
Now if someone had a system image to work with it would be a different remove all of them and start over keeping the problematic kb laying in waiting.
Just like to add it would not be the first time a third party security suite blocked a windows update.

I have updated one of 3 rigs (older Win7/64 DT), including KB 2859537, with no issues so far.

However, it seems some folks are experiencing serious issues with this patch.

KB2859537 BSOD - Microsoft Community
And robinb9 mentions here seeing something at MS update forum?
(Link, please?)

Now that I do see significant issues popping up here and elsewhere, I am reluctant to install this patch, pending more info from M$.

Anyone else having problems?

Looks like there is a solution for this: Microsoft Update KB2859537 prevents PC from booting if Rootkit is present

Windows 7 Pro 32/64 bit and Windows 10 Pro 32 Bit/64bit

not everyone has a rootkit, this brand new machine that has not been on the internet except to install MSE and security updates went down after I installed the kb on it. I checked for rootkits just in case and it was totally clean

I'm not sure if you can consider a store bought machine as "clean" depending on what you did after the purchase ?
They usually have so much pre-installed software aka: "junkware" on them.

This update is causing my background to flash through the screen when I am playing a Windows Game such as Mahjong Titans. I have removed it . I am running Windows 7 64 Bit SP1 with IE9 installed.
