Microsoft is releasing an update to the Forefront Client Security (FCS) v1 antimalware client on Thursday, June 18th. This update includes the following changes:

  • Improvements to the FCS  kernel-mode driver.
  • A change in how the component object model (COM) is used in Software Explorers. There is an issue present, only in Windows 2000, that causes it to crash.
  • A change to how the FCS engine scans shortcut files(.lnk). The engine can now be configured to query the path to which the shortcut points; if the path is on the local computer it will scan the referenced location, if it is a network location it will not scan the reference.


This update is cumulative, and can be installed on FCS v1 release client as well as all previous antimalware updates.
