My Windows Update is showing "Microsoft GDI+ Detection Tool (KB873374)" as a high priority security update. According to the information provided, this tool helps detect the presence of Microsoft products (other than Windows) that contain the GDI+ component. Microsoft customers can run this tool to determine if a GDI+ update is required. Microsoft recommends you visit the Office Update site to determine if your computer requires security updates for Office family products. I don't have Microsoft Office - why is it telling me it is a high priority update?????????

Think this dummy solved his own problem - I was interpreting this as a "critical" update - as opposed to a "high priority" update. Since I don't have Office, I guess I will just ignore it.

Thanks RandyG for the link and response. Appreciate it. Microsoft isn't real clear on their update site about this. Thanks again!

No Probs, John.

I have installed the GDI update on one machine, and will hold off doing it to others.

The one machine has asked me to check things the first time I rebooted. If it does it every time, I'll be uninstalling it!
