MS07-017 Security fix and Realtek Soundcard

With the release of MS07-017, there have been reports of Windows XP SP2 systems with Realtek audio cards experiencing the following symptoms:

When you start a computer that is running Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2, the Realtek HD Audio Control Panel may not start.
Additionally, you may receive the following error message:
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.

This problem occurs when the Realtek HD Audio Control Panel (Rthdcpl.exe) by Realtek Semiconductor Corporation is installed.

If you have experienced this issue, the fix is to apply http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935448 after application of both MS07-017 and MS07-008. This Hotfix is currently not available via WSUS/SUS and will require a manual install.

Ugh!
