    I was thinking about creating a thread about safe Windows updates before we all have safe OEM keys :)


    First update after Windows announced "blacklisting" Lenovo key appeared in my Windows Update is:
    Definition Update for Windows Defender - KB915597

    So the questinon is - is it safe? Does anyone already install it?
    IMHO we don't need to be worry about Windows Defender, but the Wikipedia says that Defender aslo uses WGA

    Just downloaded, installed, restarted - and I'm still activated ^-^

    I shouldn't really worry if I were you, even if the key does get blacklisted we'll still have some time before W7 becomes dysfunctional, and by then I'm sure there will be other OEMs, and that's worst case scenario anyway.

    What about "Security Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package (KB973923)"?
