Who decided that Windows 7 (or any version for that matter) should restart my computer by default?  I’m talking about Windows Update.  It’s great that I’m protected from the latest meanies, but now I have to race to get things back where I need them for work today.

“Download updates but choose whether to install them” seems like a better default (Control Panel->Windows Update->Change settings).

Really, I wouldn’t even mind the automatic install if it just gave me sufficient warning.  And no, a warning at 10pm is not sufficient… tell me when I’m sitting in front of my computer.

Oh well, hope everything got auto-saved…
