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.

Well, since I'd say that most EULAs are legally enforceable...any judge would have to rule in favour of the complainant in such a situation...but then, given the Sony fracas, and the inability of any government body to take Sony to task for their illegal activities, I don't hold much hope of the ordinary average user's rights being protected by the system. The system now exists to protect the large and rich corporations, not the ordinary people like you and me.
