It's not that unusual for 3rd-party software to lag (although it is an extreme case, I admit) - look at the common ones like Graphics drivers. The ones on offer at WU are almost always 6 months or more behind the ones on the OEM's websites.

Yea, I've seen Graphics drivers lag as you pointed out.
I can't remember ever seeing this much lag, and that is why i mentioned it...
I don't know if the dates are relevant for this issue, just something i noticed...

Now we're in trouble !

If it was me i would:

1) Decide if i even want to try this update and test it.
consider "If it ain't broke don't fix it"
2) If i decide i want to try it
create a System Image Backup.
Install the update and test it.
Back it out if i don't like it.
Keep it and go forward if it doesn't cause problems.
3) If i don't want to try it to see what it does
hide it in Windows Update.

As I have nothing on my PC related to it, I shan't install it.
Thanks for your help.
