    On hindsight it would have been better to leave "XP" out of the thread title since I understood that this was not only for Windows XP. I apologize for that.

    Wild Hunter,
    Thanks for your links!

    Siljaline,
    I was thanking Wild Hunter for posting the links and I did mean it. I do consider it very worthwhile to be posted (thanks again Wild Hunter!).

    I was updating my Win 7 x64 system today but wasn't offered this update, has it been pulled back?

    No, check under optional updates.

    Check your installed updates on the machine or machines where the optional update is not being offered. There is a possibility the patch has already been applied. Alternatively, search what best applies to your situation.
