Windows Updates

Recommended Posts

I am so sick of Windows/Microsoft.

 

My PC keeps trying to shut down because Microsoft have decided in their lordly wisdom that I have to. Not when it's convenient for me, but RIGHT FETHING NOW. Why? Is running a windows update so important I would normally prioritise it above any and all other tasks I am currently doing? Is it only temporary blind insanity that makes me believe erroneously that I have better things to do, and that perhaps the shutting down can occur the next time I do so normally?

 

Dear Microsoft,

 

I am not an Interplay cow. I can think for myself. And right now i think I hate you and your disgusting product.

Don't get me wrong. I want auto updates because it is more convenient to have it going on in the background. But I don't like the idea that I have to shut off my PC when they say so. It just goes to the heart of their whole mentality which is that their customers are cattle.

Yeah the whole "Restart now" or "Remind me again in 10 minutes" thing is garbage. They need a "Don't bother me again" option.

Turn off the 'auto-install' option of the automatic update process. It will still download the patches, but it will just tell you they're ready when you are. That way you can choose when--or if you want your system modified. Myself, I don't trust them enough to give them complete control.

Thanks for the advice, gentlemen. However, if you will excuse me I intend to cotnue grumbling like an upset stomach for a wee while more.
