    Hi guys,

    Dont know about you lot but when your your system automaticaly reboots after installing updates, I find this annoying....

    Real PROs do it via group policy. Everyone else should be set to "download but not install". :D

    Cheerio!

    Anythings better than the approach used by my dads company "randomly take over your machine on boot with no prior warning and make it unusable for anything up to an hour and a half while updates are applied" makes you look a right plank when your meant to be giving a presentation and the moment you fire the damn thing up the updates overtake....

    EDIT: just read the article and saw this:

    Then you should stop falling asleep mid sentence? last thing I do before I move away from my pc is hit save, even if auto-reboot is diabled theres a thousand and one other ways to lose your work overnight... or while making a cup of tea...
