MS download for Windows XP
If this (KB976002) is just to allow Europeans a better choice of browser, then there is no need for me to fear installing it?

Having recently had a string of various changes and unhelpful upgrades with time wasted while I struggled to return to familiar settings I am being very cautious about this one!

Can someone reassure me that once installed it will stay in the background unless I want to change my browser?

Yes just don't install it click on it and a box should open underneath.Just tick it not to show update again.You do not need it.

I Got it recently through automatic update all I did was click on the browser that I already use, was told I already had it and that was the last I heard from it

Not significant it seems
Probably just a requirement in Europe, lip service to reducing MS monopoly
