While there are several versions of it for each of their OS's, I'm providing a direct link for Win 7 x64:


What does it fix, dunno, as the KB page doesn't exist yet. However it does mention:

"Install this update to resolve issues in Windows"

About as informative as Asus' BIOS update info

heh the one i'm curious about is KB971033. if you did an activation restores using ABR would this hotfix detect it and ruin your day?

I suppose it's only a concern for non-legit installs :)

So... do you recommend installing it?

Depends if you need to use the new symbol for the Indian Rupee:

An update to support the new currency symbol for the Indian Rupee in Windows Vista, in Windows Server 2008, in Windows 7 and in Windows Server 2008 R2

I did for s**ts 'n' giggles.
