Windows 7: Dell, Inc. Update on an HP computer??

Dell, Inc. Update on an HP computer??

One of my coworkers brought in one of her personal machines, which is completely new (still packaged up and everything); an HP ProDesk. After going through the initial setup and installing AVs, changing IE settings and all that good stuff, I ran Windows Update. For some reason, a Dell, Inc. update showed up.

Should there be any reason for this?

Thanks in advance.

Are there any Dell peripherals attached to the machine? I'm thinking something like a monitor, mouse or keyboard.

Y'know, I didn't even think of that. It's connected to a Dell monitor. That should have occurred to me.
Oh well, thanks alot.
