Does it appear with the other updates in Add/Remove Programs? I haven't seen it there or in my update history. Unless it has a K in front of it. Then I just missed it.

All right. I do have it. Thanks.

I didn't uninstall the unofficial patch until the day after I got the official one. Would that make any difference in functionality?

Well that stinks...I decided to see if re-registering the thing would let it show up on windows update but that didnt help. By re-registering I mean I downloaded the file to temp disable it until a patch was made by MS.

It just doesnt show up...
