    I have a full article coming out  in InfoWorld on Friday, but for those of you who have asked – and are jumping up and down looking for an answer – here’s the very short version:

    If you don’t use Bluetooth, download KB 3172605 – 32 bit is here, 64 bit is here. Turn off the internet and install it.

    If you get the message that KB 3172605 is “not applicable to your computer,” download and install KB 3020369 – 32 bit is here and 64 bit is here.

    And promise me you’ll read all of the details when the article comes out!
