Thanks for the heads up on that

You say "stung", but let's see how it pans out, as it may just turn out they had every right to be "stung".

I despise phone home stuff. I anticipate problems when I finally install WAC. I had problems activating my legitimate copy of Ultimate the first time. I had to use the phone method and speak with a live person.

Win7 x64 Ultimate
 
 

Hi,

so I tried several times yesterday to check for new updates to see if WAT pops up but it never did. I'm in Europe so I was thinking "well maybe tomorrow, different time zones and all". So this morning I checked again and I can see 1 important update but when I click to see its details - I suspect it's the WAT one - I see this:

Any ideas?

OK to my above post, it turns out, after I rebooted (not applying the update) and checked again, this was just a definitions update for Win Defender.

Still no KB971033 for me, this is really weird.

Nor me, but I have run the online tool a couple of times in the last week so have W.A.T related info on my system, and wonder if that's why some aren't getting it, because they already have it?

It shows in my Firefox plugins, and my services list, so I won't require the update I don't think.
