Is it possibile that windows 8, contrary to win 7, immediately installs updates after download and doesn't wait the user shutdown request?
I'm using win 8 in a POS application and yesterday (after many many days without any problem) this application has stopped (precisely fails the the link between application and its smartcard, seems that the smartcard service, or something like this, was stopped). I solved simply restarting windows. During restart I saw that windows was updating something and I related the application fault with windows update. Restarting windows everything was back to work. I obviously disabled automatic updates, but with the same application in a win 7 enviroment it never suffered about this trobules with windows autoupdates on.
