Bugs & Viruses Users of Windows who have set the Automatic Updates option to "Download updates for me, but let me choose when to install them" were surprised to find that the latest WMF patch had overridden these settings and not only installed the patch, but rebooted the machines as well.

No automatic reboot here

Same settings, no automatic reboot here.
In fact, I had to wait several days before I found an opportunity to actually reboot.

Windows 2000 Pro SP4 and Windows XP Pro SP2 tried.

I'm guessing that these cases are due to obscurities in the configurations of the affected systems, and not any widespread problem.
