    Our own abbodi86 traced down the problem.

    You gotta wonder who’s putting together these kludges for Microsoft’s second-most-popular version of Windows. Half a billion users. Billions and billions of bucks. And a dumb mistake that has some Win7 users pulling their hair out.

    UPDATE: Abbodi86 has a more detailed analysis — and a fascinating discussion of the different levels of metadata — here. He also has a suggested fix for Microsoft, if they’re listening.

    It looks like Microsoft needs to fix things before the May Monthly Rollup, to avoid the same endless re-installation problems.
