    That's the KB number for the Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications application. According to <!mskb=905474>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 905474<!/mskb> you can't remove it - so I guess your best bet is to restore the previous image backup of your system disk, if you have one!!

    That same article that Stuart mentions, says that you can at least disable it ( WGA ) until a new version comes out. ( for whatever reason you would want to do this )

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
