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.

Questionable source...

Who are these people making this claim?

No automatic update and no reboot on the 4-5 machines I use daily.

Just because it's on the Internet, it doesn't mean it's true.

I can confirm that it's true, it happened to one of our machines.

I'm getting frustrated at how many people are ignorant enough to think that just because it didn't happen to them means it must not have happened at all.
