How do I control when Automatic updates restarts my computer?
Last night I setup an online backup that would take some time to complete
and then went to bed.. When I woke up this morning, Windows fancy, super
cool, more important than oxygen, automatic update feature had decided to
restart my PC right in the middle of the backup... one hour after I went to
Now I thought that the Windows Update tool was more user considerate than
that and would wait to install the updates once the user restarted.
I should have known better. After all we're dealing with Microsoft here.
So that begs the question.. How do I prevent this almighty tool from doing
this in the future?
This is the 1st time I've allowed Microsoft to use Automatic Updates on my
PC. This is a brand new PC with Vista so I thought that I would go the way
of the future and TRUST that Microsoft wouldn't screw me in the process.
Again, looks like I was wrong..
I can promise this.. If this happens once more then I'm done with
Automatic Updates and as soon as another platform comes around that's
feasible and opens it's software licensing to allow users to build their
own computers, I'll be a switching!
Windows Vista = The ME edition of the NT code base.. Musch like the
original ME, this one is much worse.
