WGA NOT on Microsoft Update anymore?!

Post by pupil » Wed Oct 11, 2006 1:26 pm

Is it just me or is the Windows Genuine Advantage Notification (KB905474) not on Windows/Microsoft Update anymore. I don't see it and I checked that it wasn't just because I had it hidden before. Have Microsoft given in and removed this from the critical updates? I hope so!

They had a major highly embarrassing issue with it. A couple of very large VLK customers suddenly started getting the not-genuine message on almost all their computers. It was a huge mess to fix and during the upheaval, WGA notifications was removed from Microsoft Update for obvious reasons. I do not miss it as it gave me fits on my wife's computer and Microsoft never could figure out why.

Yeah, it's been like that for awhile.
