    Received a notification for a couple of updates today through Windows Update.

    They are:
    Security Update KB972270

    and

    Malicious Software Removal Tool - Jan 2010 KB890830

    Has anyone tried these yet?

    KB972270 is avilable since october to he ones using semioffical (read leaked week or two before geting KB article) fixes and now 3 months later ts deemed as "critical". Another point how harmless hotfixes are, even more, if you install them you have your computer protected much sooner ;) and yes ALL updates/hotfixes are generaly safe until you see some WAT/WGA update.

    !!!be careful about this update!!!

    I'm not sure which one but one of the new updates are WGA (Microsoft genuine s**t)

    KB972270

    After installing those updates my cracked windows 7 7600 appears with the famous black screen WGA.

    What did you expected? It is safe for all "you know what" BIOS users, and if you are using some kind of loader, contact the person who made that loader (almost wrote "contact your support"). :)
