    It is easy enough to remove KB971003 if it is installed and you are worried about it. Just go to "Programs and Features" in Control Panel and click on "view installed updates" in the upper left hand corner. Scroll down to KB971033 and right click on it and select uninstall. Afterwards open Windows updates and "check for new updates" and you will see it as an avialable update. From there right click on it and select hide and you are done.

    Note: This will only work if you go through control panel, you can not uninstall updates from Windows updates.
