Known issues with this security update

  • This update is not listed in the Add\Remove Programs item in Control Panel. To uninstall this update, open a command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    Msiexec.exe/i {E8B56B38-A826-11DB-8C83-0011430C73A4} MSIPATCHREMOVE={1D07A92B-5945-4369-84B7-6BE19AF5714D}
  • To function appropriately, the Forefront Client Security anti-malware agent requires that GDI+ is installed. However, GDI+ is not present on Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4. For this is reason, Forefront Client Security client setup installs Gdiplus.dll into the anti-malware subdirectory on a Windows 2000 SP4-based computer. Bulletin MS08-052 states that Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 is non-affected software. Therefore, this security update is required to resolve the vulnerabilities that are introduced by the deployment of Forefront Client Security in Windows 2000 Service Pack 4.

    This update only applies to Windows 2000 Service Pack 4, and this update only updates the Gdiplus.dll that is deployed by the Forefront Client Security client setup. If a Windows 2000-based computer together with Forefront Client Security has additional vulnerable GDI+ libraries that other software packages install, this installation does not update those GDI+ libraries.
