WGA Notification (KB905474)
Hello:

I find the following in today's Windows Updates:

Windows Genuine Advantage Notification (KB905474)

I had already installed this update last February 20th.

Is there a reason it's being issued again?

Is this a less obtrusive version of that update, or is it merely redundant?

TIA

-Eli

Re: WGA Notification (KB905474)
Hi Engel:

I looked thru that site, but it didn't address the reason for repeating the
KB905474 update,since one with that name is laready installed.

The article referenced pertains to a different update:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/892130

Is the new update to:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/905474

advantageous? Or is it just more of a nuisance?

Thanks again:

-Eli

Re: WGA Notification (KB905474)
Updated versions of 905474 (WGA Notification tool) are released
periodically, apparently as part of Microsoft's effort to better detect
pirated Windows versions. Installing any version of it is purely optional.
