I saw an update named "Microsoft - other hardware - Microsoft wireless router module" and it seems suspicious to me. It's 12 KB in size. When i clicked "more information" it brought me to a page that told me that the destination i was trying to reach had been moved. I clicked on the redirect link and it brought me to a Windows Live login screen. I scanned my computer with Webroot SecureAnywhere and it found nothing. Next, I'm going to scan with MalwareBytes. I'll post the results of that ASAP.

Completely legitimate as per googling your update.

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/ScopedViewRedirect.aspx?updateid=9f3a0acc-422f-483c-9366-d43aad3f4669

clicking on that link shows the update information.

and when I click on the view more information it also takes me to a windows live log in page.
