If you want a fresh new Explorer.exe, you can install this hotfix which fixes a bug that is quite funny once you try it.

I'm not quite sure what you meant by this.. What will be patched soon? Which Fixit solution? It's a Hotfix, not a FixIt.

FIX: Locked taskbar moves to the top of the screen in Windows 7 SP1 or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.

Symptoms:

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have the taskbar locked on a computer that is running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1).
  • You right-click an icon in the taskbar to display a jump list.
  • With the jump list still active, you left-click anywhere on the taskbar and then try to drag the taskbar.
In this scenario, the taskbar moves to the top of the screen.


Notes
  • After this occurs, you can move the taskbar back. To do this, unlock it, and then drag it back to its original position.
  • This problem occurs even if you deploy a Group Policy setting to lock the taskbar. However, when a Group Policy setting is deployed, you cannot drag the taskbar back to its original position.
Cause:

This problem occurs because the function to move the taskbar is triggered incorrectly.

Applies to
  • Windows 7 Service Pack 1
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1
Hotfix download:

Is there a KB number for the update you got for this today?
I updated one of my x64 systems to see how things are going this month, and would like to see if I got this delivered/installed via Windows Update.
