When quietman 7 posted that he unintalled it, and had not had a problem with the update, I uninstalled also. MS is not sure of the cause of the issue and I differed to a higher power. No issue with the uninstall or after...

I haven't had a problem with it either so I left it alone. I saw a report that the update problem could be only for Kaspersky AV users.

Didn't automatically uninstall that update. Went on to gather as much info as possible about related issues and consequences, However after reading quietman7 comments discretion is the better part of valor. BTW since MS announcement there have been several security-related updates that I suspect have to do with this subject.

...Contrary to some reports, the system errors do not result in any data loss nor affect all Windows customers. However, all customers who have installed security update 2823324 should follow the guidance that we have provided in KB2839011 to uninstall it...

I went ahead and uninstalled 2823324. A bit nerve wracking -- after the uninstall when the laptop was rebooted, the message "configuring our machine - do not shut it off" was on the screen for 25 minutes. But have rebooted several times after the uninstall with no problems.
Frankly, Microsoft should have included a feature in Windows Update to uninstall an update. The vast majority of folks will never learn of the need to uninstall this update, nor will they understand how to do the uninstall.
