MS will resend every 3 months. If they find that you did not install, the thereat is that after several attempt,s they will cut you off from updates, including security updates.

So this is one time [like once in 3month period] its gonna apear in updates? What I did right after activation I forced update and it gave me 18 critical and 36? optional updates. I view them all before execute dwnload and there wasn't any KB971033. How they gonna know when I did update [My Autoupdate is ON]...I don't get this?

This is the culprit right here. When you don't know where your roommate got his copy of Windows, or evades answering the question, or says "Someone burned it for me" yeah, pirated software.

I hope this isn't the case but like someone else said, today, I'm seeing a lot of questions of this nature.

What happens if someone's HD crashes in the future, say 3 or 4 years, and they have to load an old image created when they first installed Windows 7? An old clean image like this won't have the update or any updates that they "resend."

For example, initially after installing Windows 7, I made a clean bear-bone image of the registered OS with all updates. Then after evaluating it for a few months, I reimaged my system with the bear-bone image and set it up with all my programs and made a 2nd image on a different drive. Both of these images were created before this update and if in the future I need to reimage my computer with one of them, neither will have this update. Does this mean MS will deny security updates to someone who restores their computer with an old image without this update?

I would imagine you'll be prompted to install it.

I've had this Windows 7 32-bit for many months. Perhaps it's not been released for the UK?
As far as I can determine based on posts in this forum, the update was only available in North America. Some Canadian posters say they saw it and others say they never saw it. European users did not see the update.

No it's typical MS public relations... They do it because they can get away with it in the US.

interesting that they thought they couldnt get away with it here in the UK our government is threatening to cut the internet off of anyone caught illegally file sharing so i shouldnt think it would be an issue
