KB2670838 issues

Just experienced Aero Glass missing, Calculator broken ( :-O ) and other windows UI issues after installing KB2670838 (as part of IE10 installation) on friends laptop. I was blaming video drivers since it has U3600 processor (integrated Intel HD video) and was already going to uninstall dreaded update, so god bless I noticed post on dpreview forum linking possible KB2670838 issues to FastPictureViewer Codec Pack. I had no codec pack, but uninstalling FastPictureViewer itself solved the problem immideatly (after restarting Desktop Windows Manager). 

I also saw post linking KB2670838 to some 3d party USB Video driver installed (not even device plugged in), so if you are experiencing such troubles I would recommend uninstall all 3d party video drivers and codec packs first before rolling back IE10 and linked updates.
