    Microsoft’s ill-fated KB 2823324/MS13-036 patch.

    First, I wanted to ask if this affects the Windows 64 bit computers? So far I have not had any problems with booting.

    Second, Should all Windows 7 remove this update no matter what version you have?

    Third, How would a person remove this update? Do you go to the Add/Remove and uninstall it from there, or is there something else a person needs to do to remove this update?

    Thanks as always for updating us on potential problems. This was the most recent WIN update on my computer. I uninstalled it just to be on the safe side, although no problems so far.

    I can still boot. I am still wondering if I have recently developed a hardware issue. I have been having blue screens of death in last few days. I’m running win7 64 bit.
    Now I will have to double check this also!
    Thanks!
