    Yeah its still around. It seems everytime i update, wga needs to verify that my copy of windows is legit. There are tools to remove it, however if you want to auto update you'll have to install it again. The only way around i figure is to update manually.

    Yes, look at the last 2 paragraphs of the link I posted, it tells you how to install it and also how to see if you have it installed. (It's in add and remove programs, but you cannot remove it, just disable it)
