Your PC is Thinking For Itself (er actually Microsoft is thinking for you).

An article showed up yesterday in eWeek that claims end users have verified that Windows is updating end user systems without notification, even if Microsoft Update is set to notify before installing updates. Methinks this is a bad thing. Particularly given the fact that sometimes those updates break other things. Security updates that shut down custom software. Plugged holes that prevent internal support personnel from getting into the systems remotely, or cause printers to stop printing.
All in all, we want control over our property. And my PC belongs to my company, not to Microsoft!!!
Maybe that’s the confusion: Microsoft thinks it owns the world!!
There’ll be more backlash from this one for Microsoft.
