Microsoft Windows Help and Support Center vulnerability (CVE 2010-1885) exploit in the wild

Reader Jack showed us notifications that the vulnerability for Microsoft Windows Help and Support Center is being exploited in the wild. More information for this vulnerability at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/advisory/2219475.mspx.

To fix this problem, please visit http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2219475 and look for the "Enable this fix" image. It will download a MSI that unregisters the HCP protocol as a workaround, because there is currently no patch available.
