Thanks for all the information everybody. I normally check on the ones that say "Cannot be removed" It sounds like it's okay huh? I will wait one more day and install it. Sound like you will need it for SPs.

All the best to my old (and new) friends here at sevenforums

Is there a significance to this update (976902) arriving unchecked?

If it's an Optional or Recommended update, why is it not grouped in that area?
If it's not Optional, why is it unchecked in Important Updates?

I believe its unchecked because it has to be installed separately, from the other updates shown.

It needs to be installed separately since it is an update to the software that installs updates.

By the way...this kb976902 does exist since quite a while...it was either installed on my machine back in Oct 27, 2010...i think many of us already have this update without clearly remember it.

Yes it was prematurely released on windows update. The kilobyte article that goes with it wasn't up on the net yet either. When people went looking to see what it was they got a page cannot be found. Then they discovered it couldn't be uninstalled in the normal fashion. Conspirator's were up in arms that Microsoft was trying to pull a fast one, yada yada yada. I installed it the first time around too. I've done a clean install since then and installed it again. My machine hasn't called me a pirate or self districted so I guess its safe.

I didn't install this update, and it still appears in my updates notification window. Does it need to be installed, or can I just disregard it?

Don't know I can tell you only when SP1 arives, and I think is next week, hoever you can put it on hide and return to it later if it will be need it.
