I hid the update supposed to bring about the Genuine Windows Notification i.e. kb 971033. However, notification is still there. Though it does not seem to cause any trouble, yet a bit annoying. What is peculiar is that this notification appears only when my laptop is on for more than 2 hours. If I shut down, it will go away for more than 2 hours. Whether on line or off line makes no difference. It all started just last month.
