Yeah, I suppose something like that. Presumably you can lock down
Windows in some way that it won't install the KB, but that is clearly
not the factory default.

I was vaguely tempted to offer the Mingw-w64 (GCC) Python as an
alternative, since it doesn't rely on any optionally-installed Microsoft
DLLs and so avoids this issue. But I suppose that is not really the
newbie-friendly solution the OP was looking for...
