Can we uninstall the EMET notifier?

Has Microcrap fixed the security issue in Window$?

I've fixed your typo.
Keep your system updated. and you don't need the temporary patch.

A previous update installed the patch. It is still installed.

Have they now rectified the issue so that EMET can be uninstalled?

Thank you for the informative link Bob.

I too installed that update and also still have EMET running.

The article seems to indicate there is no urgent need to keep it installed and running.

I would be interested to hear whether other forum users still have it (installed and) running!

Thanks in advance!

Yes, I still have it EMET installed & running on my desktop as well as all MS updates.

There seems to be no ill effects.

I have run EMET on Win machines since version 1 and would not be without it.  EMET has flagged and blocked DEP events several times where AV and Malware systems have not done anything. Definitely a keeper for me.

Yes.
I don't have any concerns with keeping it on my system, and it does add another layer of security :)

Hi folks,

EMET and also using a non-admin account is one are part of good and sound security practices.
These are things every Windows user should be aware of....
