    There are stirrings that this isn't the only patch causing problems.
    Apparently KB2859537, is causing lots of problems on Windows 7, as reported on Microsoft Community.
    The MSKB article on the patch does mention, Some users may experience issues with certain games after they install security update 2859537.
    Is it me or have these botched patch's becoming more frequent in the last year or so ?

    They certainly seem to be: of the last five Patch Tuesdays, only May went without at least one patch being withdrawn and reissued.

    Small update: Microsoft has now recalled a second patch, this time targeting the even-more-critical Active Directory service. The potentially faulty patch highlighted by Corky42 above, however, is still being distributed by Windows Update.
