Windows forced updates

by stevleg / August 14, 2010 10:04 AM PDT

What`s the go with the latest round of windows updates being forced into my PC when I have set my updates to download but don`t install? I run XP Pro and noticed this morning when I booted up the updates were being installed without my permission. I checked the update folder and noticed it had been reset to download updates! Has anyone else had this intrusion into their system ?

They usually aren't forced they will install when you say to do so.

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
