I mean, perhaps they felt that they had to force it because it's absolutely necessary.
And I would completely understand that. But if there was an uber important update like that wouldn't you think Microsoft would take the time to actually have a KB article on it?

Avira didn't find anything either. I guess I will just move on and deal with it. So violated.

I use the same setting, so I think I understand how you feel. Although, it is just one update, and it was harmless.

However, if this did something like say cause a game to lock up as soon as you reached the in-game menu (when you start the game), then I'd be pissed right along with you.

Still not addressed is the permissions avoidance that accompanies this "update" and the additional fact that Microsoft has no information on this update... STILL. The first report I have seen of this problem was in March of 2010 and MS was supposed to have the article out in a "couple of days"... that hasn't happened yet

I spoke with a "tech" 2 days ago and today. He was clueless. After trying to brush me off without escalating the problem he finally conceded to escalation and I am supposed to be getting a call on April 18th 2011 about this issue from a "higher" office. probably just a buddy. He did call me back after giving me an initial callback date of 15 April 2011, but that was after I posted the results of our conversation on the microsoft website. I think the young man is watching my posts...

I spoke to Microsoft support today (a different office?... maybe in the same building) after the original tech and will be getting a call back from them. They have assigned me some type of case number, but this is also from an outsourced overseas call center, but I have patience persistence and a logical mind.

I posted this problem in CNET, but 2 responses just verify this is a mystery.
The only plausible info I have found so far is here http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...8&changemode=1
This refers to Norton sneaking drivers into Windows through this permissions-avoiding update. When I first talked to someone about this problem they asked if I had Norton installed on this PC, and I told them no.
