Windows Genuine Advantage Notification - Should I Update?
System: Windows XP Media Centre Edition 2005
Service Pack 3

Windows Genuine Advantage Notification KB 905474

I have version 1.8.0031.0 installed on 22/02/07. Support information shows
that this update can not be removed.

The latest version is 1.9.0040.0 dated 24/03/09. I was never offered this
version.

I have two questions. Should I update to version 1.9.0040.0 ? If yes, will
it overwrite the older version 1.8.0031.0 as it can not be removed?

Serge

If it works, don't touch it. If it's broken, fix it!
