MS Forced Update
« on: September 18, 2007, 10:23:11 AM »
Microsoft Update recently forced an update even if you explicitly did not want them.

The update was for "Microsoft Update" software to ensure forward compatibility.

Now, I'm sure this will tick off a few people, but I don't really care about it. Sure, they could totally abuse their power and disable things or do bad things, but they didn't, and I don't believe they will. I'm not worried.

Any thoughts on the topic? Is it a bad precedent for MS?
