    Update released today 05-10-2011. This update may be required before selected future updates can be installed. Is it safe to install or will it break activation?

    I have a mix of retail keys and Daz's loader and just installed it on my sixth machine ... no problems on any of them. But I also have multiple system images of all machines so why worry; be happy.

    I'm very curious about this update. The last time I saw this description for an update it was in preparation for installation of SP1. I've read rumors of SP2 being close already. I guess we'll see.

    I have two PC's that were working Perfectly after recent patches (May 2011) they both received the Not a genuine version of Windows 7 message.

    I installed a few non-security updates today. My desktop will not show after entering my password so I manually reboot. It works. When I recheck windows update, kb2533552 came up again, so I assume this was the cause of the problem.
