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.

Good morning,

I am sorry to say that this is not a rumor.

Started downloading some ISO images and went to bed.

In the morning, I found the PC rebooted due to the patch install.

Not amused
