OK you didn't really miss it, but this is one of those changes that often happens without realizing it and uninstall-reinstall doesn't help, all you know is 'you didn't do anything' and it worked earlier.

Actually that could happen to me without me "doing something"

I do not allow automatic system updates - never have and never will.

Microcrap operating systems modifications tend to suck - and they love to do things to your system that I will not allow - so I check their updates very carefully and only install those that I find will either fix one of the many bugs they introduce (either in the initial design or happily throw in to screw things up along the way) or something that I believe will benefit me personally and not them in any manner.....

So I always know exactly when an update has taken place - and have my system set up so I can return to my previous state in the even that something strange happens.

This goes back to my days as a Unix SA - leave nothing to chance,
