I was wondering the same thing. I remember the fiasco from the Russian ruble one.

I don't know whether it's necessary or not but I had no ill effects after installing it.

Since it's a Recommended update, I think you can safely ignore or hide it if you don't want it.

Well, it is not really necessary in my opinion if you do not need to use the Lithuanian language. But, I guess you can get this update for future proofing.

Oh yes I remember that Russian update, if I recall a few people were a little dubious about that one too

I'm pretty sure it's just doing this for you if you don't want to mess with doing it manually,

Nah, it's doing a lot more than just flipping switches - there's 194 files in the download which have to be installed!

They were more than just dubious. Many machines were messed up by the initial update and M$ had to pull the update, fix it, then reissue it.

The KB article details 136 of them - but misses out the cat/mum files
Other than that you have to expand the full download files and check that.
