More Microsoft Invasion? in General Chat Posted June 1, 2006 · Report reply Anyone know how to get this invasive star out of the tray, outside of installing SP2? Restoring your system to a restore point before yesterday's updates should do it (It gets rid of that "Genuine Advantage" garbage from update KB905474). Then you need to work out which update causes this latest nag screen and avoid that update henceforth (post the number here so we can avoid it too). You've got the automatic updates set to off, which is a "good thing" and will protect you from some of the nastier patches Micro$oft are pushing out in their automatic updates lately.
