KB971033 Win 7

I have been reading about an update for W7 which checks for errors in certain system files.If the update detects a change or corruption,it reports back to Microsoft.
The article also stated it can make W7 unusable.

Anyone heard of this?.

Thank you

Looks as though it may just check to see if you have a genuine copy of W7.

Hi buteman,thanks for the reply.I read the official Microsoft explanation regarding the update,seems reasonable.But a few users like I said have noticed issues with it.

As anyone using W7 experienced any issues with the update?.

It has not been downloaded on to my computer and I am using W7 since it came out.

So far I have not been offered the update from Microsoft but I may just reject it if I do.
