Problems after Windows Update KB908531

After this update I had problems with right clicking on the desktop which caused my computer to freeze.

Deleting versclid.exe in task manager cleared it and allowed one click on the desktop, after which the problem returned.

I removed update KB908531 and all was well.

Being concerned about the security risk I changed my mind and downloaded and installed the update again this morning, but the desktop problem has not returned.

MS has a lot of info about the problems with the update here:

Does anyone know if the fixes here have already been built into the patch, which would explain why my problem has not returned. I think my issue may have been the Nvidia shell extension problem.

I have spent hours on this. I shudder to think how many hours in total have been wasted around the world!!

Sorry - should be verclsid.exe

The patch for the patch was issued Tuesday, last.

There should not be any problems with it now.
