This must be the new update for windows genuine checker..
Daz or some of those guys should have an update for it soon, if they do that..

I have disabled my updates, since I feel W7 doesn't need that many updates.. but I guess, will have to update sometime.. :P

I've heard of people losing net access after installing this update, but you're the first I've heard of that lost validation. What a mess.

I wonder if MS has decided to put WAT as a 'rider' on important updates to catch more pirates. They've done it with service packs.

Strange.

I installed that update @ 7 days ago but it made no difference to my copy of w7.

I just uninstalled the update with no problem.

I always read each and every KB article before going in for Windows update since incidents like these may occur. Make sure to set the "Windows Update" service to either "Manual" or better "Disable" it.

Use an imaging software like Acronis True Image to take an image of the OS before you start with Windows updates. The output would be in the form of a TIB (True Image Backup) file which can then be used to restore the pristine OS using an Acronis Bootable Recovery CD.
