    Found it - its under Update Rollups... KB976002

    Also, here is how to remove it from your PC..

    To uninstall 976002:
    1. Go to C:Windows\Servicing\Packages
    2. Find the two .mum files relating to KB 976002
    3. Take ownership of them, give yourself full control
    4. Open Control Panel, programs, Installed Updates
    5. Find KB 976002 and right click, Uninstall is not available. Important: Do not close this window, to avoid re-verification of the checksum of the .mum files.
    6. Go back to the two .mum files for 976002. Edit them both with notepad, change Permanance=”Permanent” to Permanence=”Removable”
    7. Go back to the Installed updates list, hit F5, right click KB 976002. Uninstall is now available.
    8. Uninstall the update (if you want to be double-careful, monitor with sysinternals process monitor).
    9. Reinstate the two keys which the uninstall removes
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsof\tWindows\Curr entVersion\RunOnce]
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\RunOnceEx]
    10. Reboot the PC
    11. Run the 947821 update to verify the component store
    12. Go to WU, check for updates, hide the 976002 update

    DISCLAIMER: I take absolutely NO responibilty for any damge that may be caused by the above.. you do it at your own risk!

    Thanks for the heads up. I've just imported this update through Microsoft's catalog and I've not yet approved nor declined it.

    I imported it through the catalogue 4 weeks ago and declined it then.
