Illegal system DLL relocation???

Just got this odd error notice on startup, twice - once on a restart and once on a shut down and start. Not sure what it is or if I need to be concerned about it.

What it said:
RTHDCPL.EXE Illegal system DLL relocation
The system DLL user32.dll was relocated in memory. The application will not run properly. The relocation occurred because the DLL C:\Windows\system32\HHCTRL.OCX occupied an address range reserved for Windows system DLLs. The vendor supplying the DLL should be contacted for a new DLL.

Can anyone explain what is going on?

All I did of note was get the latest Microsoft update, the one just released, and I updated Spybot and immunized.


UPDATE: I uninstalled the Windows update - 925902 - restarted and didn't get the error. That must be what caused it.

I believe this is the update that deals with that cursor vulnerability. If I'm not using IE7, do I even need to worry about this?

Anyone else having problems after this update?

I got the same message this morning and Windows updated overnight. So far, everything still works though.

Ah, so it is a recognized issue. Good.

Does that mean I should re-install the update, and then get that hotfix?

If anyone else does this, let us know if it worked OK or not.

^ Just did that, and it seems to be working fine. Thanks for the help.

I "stumbled upon" this article about the problem: http://news.com.com/2100-1002_3-6173413.html

Has anyone else had to deal with this? Apply the patch and hotfix? How's your system?

I got the message on start up for my Realtek HD Audio right after I rebooted after installing the Windows Update. Hadn't updated my drivers in a few months so just downloaded the latest driver from the Realtek site and all was well.
