  • Windows Shell Vulnerability Fix
Microsoft have now released a security update to fix the Windows Shell Vulnerability issue. 

If you are an Eitex Pro-Active IT Support customer then this update has now been installed on your machine. In order to display your icons correctly you must now reverse the workaround which was applied previously. The reversal tool is easy to run and can be found by clicking this link https://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9738981. A system restart will be required.

If you are concerned that your machine is not receiving automatic updates from Microsoft the security fix can be found here https://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS10-046.mspx

This fix must be applied before reversing the workaround.
