I think it does, the reason this key is missing is because this key is probably installed by Microsoft Word/Office. As long as Microsoft Word/Office was not installed the Windows 7 machine will be safe.

So this vunerability, at least on windows 7, is only related to Microsoft Word/Office and it's being hyped up a bit by the media/youtubers to be a "windows vunerability" which it's not really.

You're free to hold whatever beliefs you like.
But I'd recommend sticking to those backed up by evidence.

There is no test program to test for this vunerability.
You want evidence of a missing registry key ?!?
