I religiously have Windows Update set to:
Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them
However, this morning after having booted the machine, I have a notification that updates will be installed "as scheduled" (at 3am)?! And checking my Windows Updates settings, it now states:
Install updates automatically (recommended)
How? Why has Windows changed this setting seemingly behind my back?!
The only thing I did last night that I think could have triggered this (although I don't think it should have) is that I installed "Windows Movie Maker" (part of the free Windows Live Essentials). Could this have changed my Windows Update settings?!
