I don't know about the rest of you but I feel a bit uneasy about this Auto upgrades. If I choose NOT to have Microsoft's latest upgrade or even be forced into the latest version of IE, why should MS be allowed to force me?

"I'm wondering why on earth you would want to stop your browser from automatically downloading and installing security fixes"

Even though one would assume that MS updates would be a perfectly safe and error free process as it usually is judging by the fact that they receive little or no criticism. With any update because of the thousands of pieces of software on PC's there is a possible risk that there may be error. It is therefore not unreasonable and understandable for some users to practise a delay tactic for automatic downloads.
