    Yep, works now after deleted that file thing.

    Won't that hurt my laptop if I don't upgrade it?

    Thank you guys for tracking this down-- I posted the info in a sticky in GD to get more eyes on the fix as we look at the cause on our end.

    Now the real question: how does this effect the Rift ("Warden") anti-cheat. Doesn't it use elevation of privileges to detect things messing with it?
    Just datamining now. Loot given away.

    Never mind read awnser on another page in thread detailed instructions given, I will add that you can type the update number in search box to find it quickly. Removing works. Just put the instructions in a text document and read them off as you do it. (See page 3 post 35 this thread for fix).

    In the same boat, don't feel like rolling back my windows security, other games still work, patch the game pretty please so we can get back online!

    I unistalled got the blue screen of death. Also running Windows 7 64bit. Computer rebooted and got an error message telling me windows couldn't start. I allowed it to do the repairs and it reinstalled KB2859537.
    Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    It would appear that the way the rift anti cheat also called "warden" works in a way that microsoft considers a security breach, that is why the update in question causes rift to crash to desktop

    Also confirming it is only KB 2859537 causing Rift to crash when you try to log on

    For people unsure how to uninstall it...

    Go to "Start --> Control Panel --> Programs and Features"

    On the top left click "view installed updates"

    Scroll down until you see KB 2859537, uninstall it and restart when asked, log back into Rift.

    Confirmed as well. Got rid of the update posted above and I'm back on. Wonder if rift will hot fix the game to accommodate the update or I'm not going to install the update again...

    Same crash for me as described in the original post after the 12 critical updates from Windows Update yesterday (Win7 64).

    As I am very reluctant to roll back Microsoft updates because I'm tired of fixing stuff and worried that it will mess up things on my PC, I'm waiting for Trion to give us more information and try to do something on its own (I'm not blaming Trion at all on this one).
    So in the meantime no more Rift, I guess
