Windows 7: Win7 Pro Virtual PC XP notification to install an update

Win7 Pro Virtual PC XP notification to install an update

I have no idea about this. I was running an old graphics program through Virtual PC XP mode and that old yellow update balloon showed up, so I clicked it to see what it was and it opens the Automatic Update Window with [Remote] in the title. The link to the more information about this update is 'not found page' I'm just wondering what to do about this thing. I cancelled the install window, but when it comes back is this something I should install on Win 7 Pro?

Thanks for any help.

I figured it out. Clicking the update and then clicking custom gives you a window with a link at the bottom to change update settings and I turned them off since there really aren't updates for xp available.
