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.

Yeah, then I read many more comments stating the opposite.

You really didn't bother to count, didn't you? See, that's what happens when you're biased: you only count the resutls that reinforce your preconceived notions.

Only in this comments section, there were seven (7) people who said this didn't happen to them while they had the same settings (or didn't specifically say they didn't have the same settings), while there are 12 comments that say that this DID happen to them (most of them mentioning that they did have the same settings). So an informal survey of this comments section (which you yourself indicated as a valid source to form an opinion) shows that the problem is quite prevalent.

But then again, some people will go out of their way to defend Microsoft, not matter what...
