Hopefully running as a LUA with HIPS will protect me from any unwanted ".exe" until the inevitable Automatic Update from M$.

Would providing an advisory for backing up the registry be a good thing to do now since one of the workarounds is deleting a registry key? Just suggesting just in case someone may end up deleting the wrong key by accident or something.....I don't know....just wanting to take precautions.

.....and shutting up...
