Default Re: oh what will microsoft do next...

That is pretty messed up. I havent actually installed any windows updates since I got my computer. Most of the updates need updates because the first updates had bugs and glitches, so I just do away with the whole thing. SP2 has done me good, lol.

Frankly I won't upgrade until theirs a crack to prevent this. I don't have a priated verison of XP myself, however i'm sure some smart binary kid will came up wtih a blocker to this so it blocks it out. Also ever heard of linux? Frankly if this bill gets passed, i'll simply go to linux... even though i'll miss my word.

go to start > run > services.msc > find "automatic updates" or something, and right click > properties> set the "start up type" to "disabled" and stop the thing.
