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.

So that's what happened

The other night my machine rebooted in the middle of the night. I had left the speakers on, so when it rebooted and logged in I got the starting up sound (nice and loud (must have slept through the shutting down sound ;-)).

I was worried there was something wrong with my machine, and it might do it again one day, so in a way am glad to hear it's MS's fault, but still, not happy that MS did this. I hope it's just a one off bug/oops thing :-)
