Yo-yo Kaizo, I agree with you 100% but what happens when/if the updates cause almost irreparable harm? Then what are we 2 do or think? I was buck-keen on updates but it all went sour. If my PC were not under warranty, that SP1 update would have cost me big time...so is it really user error? Or is something weird going on? If it's all user error I'm over the moon to admit that because it's an easier answer 2 live with.What a perfect time to remind everyone that updates are incrediably important. Anytime someone nay-says about how the update proccess takes 5-10 minutes every month I tell them "well would you rather be wide-open (basically) because of your stupidity?"
So don't let it happen to you. If your lazy do yourself a favor and at least have automatic updates enabled. You'll thank yourself later.
