    If KB2543241 is already applied, is KB2535812 still needed? They seem to have the same files. The security bulletin says nothing about this. KB2535812 says it includes KB2543241, but does it add anything?

    In the KB Article, it mentions that PPT Viewer is Non-Affected software, yet, only those machines that have PowerPoint Viewer are still having files updated and the patch showing up in ARP.
