I wonder how he tested it? I accepted the windows update download of
it, but none of the instructions mention the name of the program, and
it doesn't show up in any menus that I've found, so somewhere on my
computer there is a program installed by update that might be useful
if I knew where it was and how to run it :-).

I followed the update link to the knowledge base description, and the
entire KB article simply refers to it as "this program" -- no mention
of the actual name.

I love Microsoft -- they are such a source of un-intentional humor :-).
