Windows Update KB970159

Although I have Windows Update set to inform me before downloading anything, last night an update with the reference (KB970159)began to install automatically and required a restart to finish configuration. Checking 'Update History', and right-clicking on this item, gives the category as "Important" and the information "User-Mode Driver Framework". However, unlike all other updates which are labelled "Update for Windows Vista" (my version), this one is labelled "Update for Windows". Clicking on the link for more information on the MS website finds nothing. I'd be very grateful if anyone can tell me what this is, and why it should download without my permission. Many thanks.

Heard its something to do with Zune,whatever that is.

Thank you both; slightly clearer, although I'd never heard of 'Zune' until your responses. I've certainly never (knowingly) downloaded anything to do with it. However, I did have a Nokia mobile connected at the time; I wonder if it was mistaken for some Zune hardware (is there such a thing?). Still don't know why it should download without permission, though. Cheers.

My Samsung Phone software totally screwed my PC, until I realised that my PC could treat it as just another external USB drive.

Now I just drag and drop. Samsung Software uninstalled.

The Zune device is a digital media player for your music, video, pictures, and podcasts. Zune software helps you manage the music, pictures etc.

Nokia and Zune are currently working alongside each other click here

The most likely reason for your download - having your nokia mobile connected "at the time"
