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 cant believe people are advocating for someone else to have total control of their pc. I dont want ms or anyone but ME controlling how MY pc behaves. This smells alot like the beginning of "trusted" computing.
Where the pc controls what YOU can do not the other way around. This was the last straw for me ;) I removed windows from my kids computer which was used for games.
Ill use gnu/linux and osx only from now on.
