Automatic Updates Bypassed?

Post by Spirit on Fri 19 Nov 2010, 8:54 am

Stitched on the computer this morning and found that everything was enlarged. Desktop, all software etc. Tried playing around with the settings but could not get it to where it should be. In desperation I did a system restore. I then saw that automatic updates had installed a critical update last night even though I have auto updates switched off. Restored to before this update and everything now works properly. What is Microsoft updates up to?


"The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge."

I have auto updates enabled. They show and install on the Windows shutdown screen (i.e. when I close down Windows they install before the pc switches off). However, I got an update alert in the system tray (yellow shield quick launch icon) that did not show on the shutdown screen. This made me suspicious, so I haven't installed yet. Your post prompted me to Google it. I found this, which I think is the same update:
