Legacy Code

the Update is voluntary

The update can also be uninstalled at any time.
Dont make any sense to me at all .Do they just not want people to stop using 7 and possibly move back to XP/Vista ? Or is this just a test run of updates to counter piracy in Win 7.

To tell you the truth, *I'm* sweating a bit.

The current tech has a habbit of false identification now and then, add 70 more cases for false positive possibilities and I fear the number of legit users that will get burned by this
