“We’ve identified and resolved the issue, which was related to a recent Adobe Genuine update that impacted a small number of Windows 7 users. Adobe has fully rolled back the update automatically for all impacted customers. No action is needed by customers. If you are still experiencing the issue, it will be resolved shortly via an automatic update.”

We shall see if this is truly the fix.

This suggests that NOTHING IS NEEDED FOR USERS TO DO (other than perhaps roll back any temporary "fixes" they might have applied, e.g. the GPEDIT change for the UAC adminstrative approval item, changing programs to "run as Administrator", etc.)?  In other words perhaps just return to the way things looked on your Win7 system on about Feb 5, Adobe rolls back their damaging update overnight, and by tomorrow at the latest everything is back to normal?  Case closed?

I wasn't aware that Adobe was quietly pushing out their own software updates (e.g. to Adobe Genuine services running in the background and now accused of being responsible for this worldwide debacle) without us users knowing about it, but I guess we now know this is going on.  Perhaps I shouldn't be totally surprised??  I mean at least updates to Flash Player require our acknowledging and permission to apply, and thus the ability to prevent these updates if we wanted to. Of course we usually trust software vendors, so how are we to know it could cause something like this?

So, is it only Win7 users who were affected? What about Win10? Don't they also have Adobe Genuine services running there?  No impact for Win10?  There were some reports of unusual administrator-related anomalies occurring very recently, but perhaps just random noise.

Did it impact anything else, e.g. Macrium Reflect image backups and VSS malfunctions strangely occurring around Feb 7, but not on Feb 6??  Reports of that too.

We shall see what settles out over the next few days.

In spite some of the "tin-foil hat" rants here, the evidence does seem to indicate that it's an issue with the Adobe services.  If you disable the Adobe services and reboot the problem disappears entirely.
