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.

The worrying aspect...

The worrying aspect to me is that it seems to be happening, but it's not a consistent issue. This sort of tells me that there's problems with either the way that windows update works, or the way that the patch is delivered and installed, or core problems with the operating system, or a combination of them!

I'm glad I don't use Microsoft Windows!
