I have been asked to use WGA twice when downloading progs from the Microsoft site. Once for IE7 (now uninstalled!) and again when I went from WMP10 to WMP11. Its Microsofts way of checking that you have a genuine copy of Windows installed. Having said that I have never been asked to install or run it other than direct off the Microsoft site and I do not recall any reference to it in an update notification so I would be "slightly suspicious"
Yes i Just had this update come on. As i'm on custom install I clicked the do not include this in future updates. Mind you i had this before quite a few months ago now and did the same. So maybe the 'don't include in future updates' button gets reset after a while so that Microsoft can redo this update. One of the reasons i use custom.
