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.

Happened to me

This happened on my home system: Windows XP Home SP 2, automatic update is set to download but not install files. The WMF patch decided to reboot the PC anyway. I had left the PC on overnight with no visible applications running (lots of background ones though), if that makes a difference?
