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 kinda agree--I have auto updates turned off too. I just visit the Windows Update site once a month on or around patch Tuesday, and if there's a critical out of cycle patch I'll have heard about it. But if you're administering more than a few computers it's a hassle, and for people who pay less attention to such things it's easier to just let auto update do it's thing.
