Hello Vagablonde,

Yeah, the only real way to prevent this is to change the Windows Update settings to either Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them, or Never check for updates. You would just have to remember to manually install them every so often.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I figured that might be the case.
My computer died recently ..play taps
I had it set to not auto update..and just ran them on wednsday
since microsoft usually posts on tuesdays.

I have been reading your tutorials for some time..many thanks for sharing the knowledge.
