    Awesome utility!

    I've been hesitant to run HP's so-called "Essential System Update[/URL]" hotfix pack without knowing what each KB does.

    I extracted HP's exe in 7zip and then used your tool to read what each one does. As I suspected, they're pretty useless.

    Thanks for making this.
