Microsoft Just Can’t Leave Your PC Alone!
Recently Microsoft was “called on the carpet” because it was installing updates on your computer even when you said that you didn’t want them. Now, they are “ba-ack!”
Just when it seemed Microsoft had averted a PR debacle after an update to its Automatic Updates service in Windows installed itself into users’ computers even when they thought it was turned off, now it appears something is turning back on many users’ Automatic Updates. Late Friday night, Microsoft Update Program Manager Nate Clinton denied having discovered anything in his company’s software that could be causing the problem. ‘We have received some logs from customers, and have so far been able to determine that their AU settings were not changed by any changes to the AU client itself and also not changed by any updates installed by AU.’ But last weekend, multiple members of the AeroXperience Forum reported having their update service turned back on. Some noted the update forced their systems to reboot, which in the case of servers can cause outages for the services they provide. Clinton said his team is still looking into whether another Microsoft application could be making this change without users’ consent.”
Come on M$! “Personal Computer” means it is MY computer… don’t assume that you can come in and just install something without my knowledge and consent!
