That is not a "patch", not installed by default: is only for
uber-geeks who manually install it. Was issued a week ago, in
response to this kerfuffle, not "quite some time ago".

Which setting of CWDIllegalInDllSearch did you choose: was it
0xFFFFFFFF which may be "safe", but is known to break Outlook
(and others), as noted in

(geeks can add further tweaks to the registry to fix).
