I've seen mention to this very important update everywhere on the Internet. But what was not mentioned afterwards was the finding from F-Secure (which was the first to report the vulnerability) of memory leaks in the Intel wireless service used to manage wi-fi connections.
The way to solve this issue is to use the Microsoft Windows Wireless Zero Config service instead and disable/remove the Intel PROSet/Wireless Service, keeping the new drivers in place (or installing the drivers manually).
Instructions from F-Secure and a report from SANS.
You should end up with drivers version 188.8.131.52 even if using the Windows configuration service.
