I am religious about keeping my Windows XP up to date. Most of the time, the updates are "security fixes". But today a new one came up, and I'm trying to figure out why - and what it is.

Microsoft-Other hardware-HD Non-User Input Data Filter (KB 911895)

I have not made any changes to my hardware recently. When I Googled this, the results went back to 2008. So I'm curious as to what this is and why it's coming up now?

KB911895 is for using a Microsoft IntelliPoint software on a Vista machine. The article I am referencing is here:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/911895

Navigate to that site I listed above, and scroll to the bottom. If you use any of the products listed in the 'Applies To' section, then install the update.

But I don't have Vista - I have Windows XP. So why would Automatic Update be picking this up?

It's probably specifically in relationship to your hardware. Are you using IntelliPoint?

I did find that my keyboard (Logitech) is an "HID" device. I don't really know what "Intellipoint" is.
