    For dstrauss -- try OOShutUp. I have two configuration files for that. One, the one normally in use, does block ALL updates. You can't even manually download them. When I do want to do an update I swap in the other file, go to microsoft updates and proceed. I also use Microsoft's Hide Updates Tool so that unwanted ones don't auto install while I'm allowing updates.

    Another way to stop updates: keep the power setting on battery saver. It won't update while on battery saver setting, tells you so. You just put it to trigger at 100% or lower batt level; if you need the oomph, you toggle it off temporarily, and it auto-resets when you're done or re-boot. Saves battery life to boot.

    For once it sounds good to be in Europe as Microsoft roll updates out a week after they "stick it" to the loyal folks in America first. I've now delayed 2004 updating until the end of August but I'm sorry to read what's happening to people on the other side of the pond. :(

    Hopefully by then the horrors will have been sorted out.
