maybe have a look here, I uninstalled all the relevant updates and haven't seen anything, actually let me do more things like "add search providers" that I couldn't before uninstall.

Well, if it's not legit, they definitely did their homework, huh?

It seems it might have been update KB3035583.

Yup. Uninstalling KB3035583 did the trick.

Thanks for the assistance.

So it is definitely legit then? So Microsoft is indeed already pushing out the notification to Windows 7 users?

It would appear so. As soon as I rebooted it tried to get me to download it again before I hid the notification.

That's nuts. I guess I'm a little surprised that (a) it really happened because in the back of my mind I never really thought Microsoft would do nagware and (b) even if they were going to do it, I figured we wouldn't see it until later in the year.

It's just a Reservation. I think MS wants to get a head-count of who's interested. It will help with "traffic control" when the actual time comes. I suspect there's a download manager to handle interruptions built in with the updates too. I know the TP downloads would range from two to 12 hours for me depending on when I started. (Time of day)

Surely you guys knew this was coming from the description of the updates.
