    Only in the System32 folder. From the winsxs folder you can take the old version, there are several of them.

    It is NOT a fix, it's just a workaround.

    I got the update pushed via Windows Update but I decided to hide it, as I don't have a stretched wallpaper. Might probably be included for this Patch Tuesday coming (or March even).

    If I'm understanding this right, that latest update caused that to happen. If that's correct, just as well I didn't have it installed then (but since about two years ago I hibernate my system each day now).
