Thought I would post this for Rhiannon. As mentioned that patch can not be
removed safely. When I tried to remove it, it listed four or five other
patches that may not work correctly. So I cancelled out.
I may try and do a windows repair and see if that will put a fresh copy of the
affected file(s) back on the machine. The repair I mention is the repair
option you get when the installer finds a copy of windows on the hd and then
asks to repair or whatever. Not the one where you use recovery console.
Ideas / Suggestions.
