Office 2007 Crashes on Server 2008 R2

A few days ago after one or another update of my Server 2008 R2 machine, all my MS Office 2007 apps would crash immediately when started, and the only thing in the event log was something like:

Faulting application EXCEL.EXE, version 12.0.6524.5003, time stamp 0x4b4fba46, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, time stamp 0x00000000, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x00000000, process id 0xa10, application start time 0x01cad7f1dc0ebffb.

It took me a while to hunt down the fix so I'll post this for googlers with similar issues: http://blogs.technet.com/office_sustained_engineering/archive/2010/03/11/issues-with-office-after-installing-kb977724.aspx

uninstalling the kb977724 update should take care of the problem
