    Mod Edit: I have edited the article you posted out, post links to articles and don't post complete articles here, it violates their copyrights and our board rules. This is more along the lines of what you should do for such references.



    Interesting reading: Microsoft updates Windows without users' consent

    Interestingly enough I was actually offered the update to the Windows Update software.

    I assume that, if I had declined the offer, the update wouldn't have worked, but at least I was asked!

    I don't suppose it's significant but I was using Firefox with the IE Tab.
