Windows 7: Strange update.

As stated earlier, one update is for Intels Extreme Tuning Utility program, something that`s been around for awhile already, and really should not even be showing up in windows update.

I installed that program a long time ago and found it fairly useless.

I`m experimenting with the second update (no description given for it) way to go MS

I`ll keep everyone posted if there are any problems.

Yea, just got those 2 again. Clicked hide on the first one a few weeks ago.

Another one shows up with a friend.

Also noticing there are less updates in general lately, even for Security Essentials. I'm guessing this is normal.

That link is dead.

I got the same update for a Gen-2 i7-2600 Processor on a DH67BL (LGA1155) Intel board using on-board graphics (HD 200). The version number is well above the last Intel update for my board and suspect it's for a Gen-3 or Gen-4 processor.

I hid the update until better info is given. Being the holidays, MS may have killed the link above. I would NOT install the update until MS publishes more information on the update.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

That's weird... the link is still alive for me. The driver files installed are
Code:
C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\ICCWDT.sys
and
Code:
C:\Windows\system32\wdfcoinstaller01009.dll
with Hardware ID
Code:
ACPI\VEN_INT&DEV_3F0D

I received another Intel update from MS again this morning. I didn't take much notice of the details & just hid it.

We seem to be getting peppered with useless Intel updates from MS, I wonder what is going on.
