    I have a MS Intellipoint Laser Mouse 7000 V7.0 installed. When I went to
    install V7.1 this windows update KB970158 tagged along with my knowledge
    or permission. MS doesn't even list a description as to what it is. What
    was odd was that id didn't come thru the normal windows update screen. I
    uninstalled it and my mouse stopped working. I uninstalled V7.1 and went
    back to V7.0 and everything now works again. Can anybody tell me this is

    sorry but beside that the update is legit gives your link little to no
    information about the update.
    why is there no kb article?
    why does it not ask for permission to install?
    what does it do?
    why does it install after installation of microsoft mouse v7.1?

  4. You'd have to ask MS why KB970158 is a generic reference for driver updates
    offered by Windows Update.
    Because your Automatic Updates setting ("Give me recommended updates the
    same way I receive important updates") tells the update server to install
    such driver updates without approval
    Updated drivers supposedly correct known-problems & bugs. If you're not
    having problems, do you really need the driver update?
    Because your Automatic Updates setting says to install such driver updates
