Windows update changes my settings
I just turned on my computer and the windows update downloaded all
the
recommended and important updates. I HAD the settings for windows
update set that I could view and download the ones I wanted only.
Well, after it downloaded all the updates I had not specified, I lost
all of my husband's email and settings on his user site. Thank God
for system restore. After I restored I checked the windows update
again and yes, it had changed back to automatically installing
updates. Does anyone have this problem? Vista seems to have a mind
of it's own here and it is frustrating not to have my settings stay
put. Any advise? Thanx!

> * From the customer logs that we received, we found that none of

the updates released as

> * I want to stress that the Windows Update client does not change AU settings without
> user’s consent. However, AU settings can be set or changed in the following scenarios:
> o During the installation of Windows Vista, the user chooses one of the first two
> recommended options in the “Out of Box Experience” and elects to get updates automatically
> from Windows
> o The user goes to the Windows Update Control Panel and changes the AU setting manually
> o The user goes to Security Center in Windows Vista and changes the AU setting
> o The user chooses to opt in to Microsoft Update from the Microsoft Update web site
> o The user chooses to opt in to Microsoft Update during the installation or the first
> run experience of another Microsoft application such as Office 2007
>
> If you believe that your AU setting changed, and none of the scenarios above apply to you,
> please contact support so we can help determine what may have prompted the changes.
