    I find the following in today's Windows Updates:

    Windows Genuine Advantage Notification (KB905474)

    I had already installed this update last February 20th.

    Is there a reason it's being issued again?

    Is this a less obtrusive version of that update, or is it merely redundant?

    Hi Engel:

    I looked thru that site, but it didn't address the reason for repeating the
    KB905474 update,since one with that name is laready installed.

    The article referenced pertains to a different update:

    Is the new update to:


    advantageous? Or is it just more of a nuisance?

    Thanks again:

    Updated versions of 905474 (WGA Notification tool) are released
    periodically, apparently as part of Microsoft's effort to better detect
    pirated Windows versions. Installing any version of it is purely optional.
