Its called the "Black Hole Update"
MS is very very vague on what it does.
What its for.
And how it spies on you.

Hi,

It could be something to do with the upcoming SP1 for Windows 7. The fact it cannot be removed says that it is going to be required if you wish to recieve & install further updates.

If your copy of Windows 7 is legit (purchased/pre-installed on new machine) then you shouldn't have anything to worry about

It could also be a new WGA update to counter piracy which corrects any tampered files directly affecting the Windows Activation technology...

Also thought it was for upcoming SP 1 or IE 9 beta, didn't pay attention to the cannot be uninstalled part.

MS needs to be more transparent Jeez! You dont release an uninstallable update without proper documentation, a lot of people will hold this update off till the notes are available. Though if someone wants to get rid of this, i think system restore would be the way out.

Or image your Windows 7 install before installing this update.

Edit: I believe this update is included in the leaked sp1, its required to install sp1.
