  2. Maybe you're just lucky? Read the following then decide if you really want
    to install KB982217 or just hide it. [1]

    Unwelcomed MS Live Toolbar...
    ["After 3+ hr with MS TS, including 3 screen-share sessions and escalation
    to
    Tier 2, we were able to reproduce the problem, but they have no idea of
    cause
    or fix. They (of course) said they are not being swamped with calls about
    this
    (yet)."]

    The company says it has now, um, updated the update, and the silent toolbar
    install no longer occurs. The company calls the silent install "a bug."

    "We discovered a bug in the latest update that was installing the Firefox
    extension for users with the Windows Live Toolbar and MSN Toolbar
    (specifically people who have not upgraded to the latest version of the Bing
    Bar)," the company tells us. "We fixed the update so that going forward
    folks
    who still have only the older Windows Live Toolbar or MSN Toolbar will not
    see
    this behavior anymore."

    The company apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused.

    Microsoft explains mystery Firefox extension, "fixes" update
    <QP>
    ....this particular [update] does not show up in Control Panel => Programs
    and
    Features => Installed Updates. Furthermore, the Uninstall button for the
    extension is greyed out in Firefox. Internet Explorer, meanwhile, does not
    have uninstall options for add-ons: only Enable and Disable buttons are
    present. [So much for End-to-End Trust!]

    Microsoft gave us the following instructions to remove the extension...
