Did you read the part under ' Uninstalling Windows Desktop Search on a
Windows XP-based computer may cause metadata loss and broken
functionality for photos in Windows Live Photo Gallery ' ?

Peter ... ignore my previous post. Forgot which NG I was in.
Frankly, I know of no reason why that update is offered to a Vista system.
Speculation - perhaps it's Important if one 'downgrades' to XP ? <w>

Thanks. I installed it anyway and nothing seems to have broken in the
process.

Hey,

KB946486 has been downloaded to my PC a couple of weeks ago, but the
installation of this update always fails!!

I have a Windows XP computer that have version 2008 of Windows Live Photo
Gallery installed, and i have enabled updates to be installed automatically.

Do i need this update? Why will it not install on my PC? Is there any way
for me to remove this update?

DAG.
