Bugs & Viruses We're well and deep into April 1 now, and if you were to believe some of the reports and hype on the internet, we should've all been paying in bottle caps right about now. As any sane person already saw coming, the Windows worm Conficker didn't do anything. It just kind of sat there, patiently mocking all those who did not update their machines properly.

RE[7]: April Fools

sbergman27, to be completely honest I have NEVER seen any update from Microsoft that trashes someone's system, either personally or professionally.

Well, personally and professionally, the number one reason I have heard from people for turning off updates is that a previous one "trashed their system". Maybe it did. Maybe it didn't. But you really can't blame people who feel helpless anyway from taking an "If it works, don't fix it" attitude.
