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.

How did you verify that microsoft changed any setting on your system?
The majority of the posts from people complaining about the reboots shows they never understood their settings.
They always had this policy configured, they realized this particular reboot just because of the media attention around this patch.

Please note that I don't like MS policies at all, but with so much REAL problens from it we could avoid ghosts hunting.
