Windows automatic update/WGA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windowssecrets and ZDNet are reporting this morning that Windows Update has just installed updates to their computers without persmission or notification , even on machines that have automatic updates turned off:


    How can I find out if that has happened on my PC?  I am running Windows XP SP2.  I have automatic updates turned off and I don't want updates applied without my knowledge.  Do I need to set my firewall to block these in the future?  I don't mind applying needed security updates, I just want to know when they happen.  Why give an option for automatic updates if they are going to happen anyway no matter what I select?
