Windows 7: Uninstall Win7 Signature Edition? What's that?

Uninstall Win7 Signature Edition? What's that?

I just noticed something strange, hopefully someone can explain this to me.

I installed the Windows 7 Signature Edition from Launch Party Kit to one of my computers. Was just now doing some maintenance and noticed something strange.

Check the image here:

It shows Windows 7 on the programs list. Double clicking it, or choosing Uninstall / Change brings this up:

Uninstall Win7 Signature Edition? What's that?-w7siged_2.png

The thing is, this was a clean install so what happens if I choose Yes? I am really tempted to try...

I have never seen the installed Windows OS listed among other installed software on the programs list. No big issue but once again something I would like to undestand.

Any deeper knowledge among geeks and gurus here?

Maybe that entry is for any logos/themes/walls/icons specific to the Signature Edition...

I honestly don't have a clue Kari...

Hi Kari.

I would assume that there were additional Signature graphics bits - and this would simply remove those

But there really is nothing special in this edition. No extra graphics, nothing. And to make it more strange, I installed it on November 5th (the date shown in the image as installation date for Live Essentials which I installed first after finishing Seven installation), not the 8th as it says .

I wonder if Windows Update installed something on that date just for your edition...
