One of our readers submitted a question, which I'd like to pass on to all; Back in September Microsoft posted an issue with it's update, which we covered in our diary

http://isc.sans.org/diary.php?storyid=673

For which Microsoft then submitted

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555461/EN-US/

So, today being a somewhat slow day, we were wondering if there are any readers who had problems with WindowsUpdate, and subsequently applied the listed patch?  What were the results?
