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.

I have seen this twice now. both time it happened in the middle of someone using the computer. after using the computer the user would just get a pop up telling them they needed to reboot now. they had the option to reboot later and selected that but the message would just come back in 5 min. After about 3 time they just rebooted. If the the user had not told the machine to reboot it would have rebooted on its own.
