    Microsoft Pulls 2982791 Recommends Users Uninstall

    Hey Y'all,

    I just got this Security Bulletin from MS this morning. I've included the entire message but the Bolded part is what is important. Note: I have subscribed to receive these from MS it is NOT a random email!

    I've uninstalled as directed and then checked MS Update and it does not offer the update again.

    HTH

    See also here.

    My info was based on the then current KB, rather than the Technet bulletin linked from your email.

    So far I have not had any of the problems described by MS in their advisories so I will just leave it on the 3 computers that I installed it on here. Wait and see I guess.
