  1. Does windows update automatically restart your pc when idle ?


    I left my pc for an hours, when i came back i saw white dot circle on my screen and continue with getting update ready or windows ready message (i cant quite remember) and logon screen appear as usual. And i remember my windows downloading update couple hours ago, because i saw this on task manager.My question is, does windows update automatically install and restart your pc when idle? And when i can check this setting ?

    :)

    windows automatic updates

    i have some questions about the windows automatic updates in windows xp pro w sp/2. ive got about forty updates they recommend , mostly for security but i only installed two today. after installing them i found them in my add/remove programs in the control panel, if i add all these updates that is a lot of space on my hd almost 1 gig. i thought that updates just updated files and not created new programs. should i innore all these update suggestions from microsoft?

    Resolution Suggestion:

    # To resolve this problem, make sure that BITS and the Automatic Updates service are started..

    A simple solution but one that works in most circumstances!

    1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.

    2. In the list of services, right-click Automatic Updates, and then click Properties.

    3. In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.

    4. If Service status is set to Stopped, click Start, and then click OK.

    5. Right-click Background Intelligent Transfer Service, and then click Properties.
