I've not often jumped on the Microsoft Sucks Bandwagon.
Til last night when Bill Gates rudely woke me up by taking control of my computer, again, against my will. And restarted it.
Yesterday afternoon I saw that there was yet another round of security updates to prevent someone horrible from taking control of my computer (like Microsoft does).
I read the details of the updates, saw one was irrelevant to me, de-selected it and hit the cancel button.
Now, I know I can somehow disable these Microsoft XP automatic updates, I think. But, I also know that it's likely a wise plan to do the updates. But, I really do not think I was in imminent danger of attack. I should have been allowed to install and re-start when I wanted to.
