at first I wasn't good about the updates, I'd just keep hitting the "remind me in 3 days" button, but since I've installed SP1 I've downloaded everything as soon as it comes out with the automatic update system.
thanks for the link, but for me the link didn't come up right, I had to change it to

How much money does Bill Gates have?

I wish I was that stupid
The only clever thing that Bill Gates did was to allow his early operating systems to be pirated. Without Taiwanese clones, Bill Gates would be nowhere.

Microsoft is not stupid.

Blindly accepting thier default settings can be!

They are getting better, but they make thier choices based and what will be best for the most people. You situation or need may make that default setting a dumb one for you. It is never wrong to become informed and make a choice based on your need.

I just recently went from Windows98 to Windows 2000. After doing the upgrade I went to put service pack 3 on. As part of that I read about the software update utility. It plainly stated that when you install the service pack, the feature would not be configured. It also said that after 24 hours it would prompt you to configure the utility, if you haven't already done so. It said this was so there would be no way that MS could download any software to your computer without you specifically allowing it and knowing about it.

After the installation I went and checked on the settings. It was configured to automatically allow downloads, without prompting or acknowledging that the download happened.

Needless to say I disabled it. Anyone else running 2000 SP3 should probably check the setting.
