I am running 2 computers with Windows 7 (legal) and have installed KB971033 on both of them. Of course, all is Ok, but I was wondering if those with modified Win7 installations that installed the update and were OK for now could disable the 90 day check in the Task Scheduler to prevent any future MS checks? I actually did this on mine just to see what might happen. Open the Control Panel/ Administrative Tools/ and double click on the Task Scheduler. When that window opens, the tree under the left side (Task Scheduler Library) can be opened to: TSL/ Microsoft/ Windows/ Windows Activation Technologies. The center window will then show the 2 WAT 90 day check "tasks". I disabled both, but it also looks like you can delete these separate entries, or even just delete the Windows Activation Technologies folder. Of course, it remains to be seen what consequence this will have, but it seems to me that it's a good way of installing the update (when you are Ok with the results) and preventing any future checks. What do you all think?
