Or at least I heard that it was SP1 on from someone else.

you should only ever install updates when there are officially posted on the Microsoft official websites only
It comes via automatic updates. I just installed it and it hasnt wrought any havoc.

It installed on my 7 Home Premium x64 PC. Haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary so far. I'm legal, didn't have to re-activate, and the genuine Microsoft software Blue box is displayed on my System screen. I just assumed it had to do with WAT or WGA. I have system restore turned on but I don't feel the need to go back to the future just yet.

Hi, this is my 1st post ,kb976902 must be dodgy because it has disappeared from the latest updates notice from MS today!! Im glad I didnt install as on another forum I read that someone installed it and cant do a system restore because all restore points are gone!!. I download and install all updates manually to be on the safe side.

KB976902 was applied on my system on 10/26/2010. I have system restore points back as far as 10/20/2010. I haven't tried to use one yet to undo KB976902 but I assume I can if I want to. Eventually Microsoft is going to have to fess up as to what this update is for.

Very interesting....the update has disappeared from the update list. People are reporting this on some forums

People that had refused to d/l it have reported it disappearing from their update lists.

I had KB976902 set as "hidden update" and when I went to restore hidden updates to see if it was still there, it had disappeared from the list.

Curiouser and curiouser...

Edit...I found this with some more data and an apparent explanation from MS

as i say updates should only be installed when they are officially posted on the right web pages from Microsoft weather they work or not it's irrelevant there can be many reasons why an update could slip through so it's best to wait
i get to see all updates along with other mvp's long before anyone else and if it hasn't posted there must have been a valid reason and me being asleep is not one of them

Yep. I am a habitual Update procrastinator. I see the notification, I might check out what ready for download, but I never install updates right away. That's a computer chore. I do chores on Saturday!

So I saw the notification, saw one important update (the one in question). Yeah - yeah, I'll get to that....
Yesterday the notification icon disappeared. Curious, but not that.
Today I checked WU manually. The update update was gone as noted by others.

It does not instill confidence. Glad I procrastinate. Would love to know what that was all about. I.E.: "Never mind?!?"
