M$ annoying constant reminders for updates

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by All Things Mopar, Aug 13, 2005.

  1. In the last two days, I've been pestered 6 or more times to
    download and install one or more security updates per time
    pestered for some part of my Win XP Pro SP1 system.

    I don't allow M$ unfettered access to my computer so I have
    auto update set to "ask before downloading". Then, I carefully
    review each proposed update, decide on the one(s) I wish to
    download and install, and do so over a period of time so as
    not to have an errant patch take down my system.

    As expected, most of these require a Windoze restart. Fine.
    But when I say "later", I /mean/ "later"! But, there seems to
    be no way to stop being reminded literally every 5-10 minutes
    to restart and there is no "check here not to be reminded
    again".

    How can these constant reminders to restart be aborted
    permanently until I /choose/ to restart? Please don't go down
    the road of "dummy, just restart and go on with your life".
    That's not the question. I use my computer to do useful work,
    and not to satisfy the whims of M$ ostensibly trying to
    protect me. If they did their God Damn jobs in the first
    place, they wouldn't have to release hundreds of patches per
    year, but that's a rant for another day...

    Secondly, why the Hell can't the dumb-ass auto update system
    get their act together /once/ so that I can choose what I want
    and restart my computer, and not be immediately met with
    another "updates are waiting to be downloaded" message, after
    I'd previously finally agreed to /all/ the previous updates
    available?

    Finally, one of the updates was an OE6 SP1 security patch that
    I downloaded and installed successfully at least 4 times, and
    each time, the update notification returned asking to download
    the very same patch yet again. It is sitting there right now,
    the 5th time, even those I have successfully installed the
    patch, /and/ told the auto updater not to bother me again.

    So, my final question is, how to I get the imbeciles at M$ to
    take heed of what /I/ want to do instead of continually trying
    to impose /their/ will on me? It is extremely annoying that M
    $ thinks it owns the whole God Damn world and people should
    just stop whatever they are doing, face west (in my case), bow
    down and worship the ass hole pagan god in Redmond?

    Right me off as a raving lunatic if you like, but I'd
    appreciate knowing how to stop this outrageous refusal of
    Windoze to do what I tell it to do and /not/ do what I forbid
    it to do. I'm well aware that I can completely turn off auto
    update notification and get them manually, but I like at least
    being told they are available. What I do /not/ like is
    constant pressure to install things whether I want to or not.

    While I'm on my current rant, since last August, I believe
    I've been pestered well over a dozen times to download and
    install SP2 even though I uncheck it, close the window, then
    check "do not remind me again". What the F__k about "NO" don't
    these people understand???

    End of rant, I now return you to the regularly scheduled
    broadcast...

    If you hate MS so much why do you still use windows?.There's Macintosh and
    Linux. I mean all you ever do is bitch about Microsoft. Just so you know
    both Mac's and Linux each have 3x times as many updates as MS does. Right
    now if you have a legitimate complaint about windows the only answer you are
    going to get would be Get SP2 and all the updates.

    That's NORMAL, don't listen to the trolls who are trying to convince you
    that you have a problem.

    I just turn off the updates, one problem I don't need - SP2 is good
    enough.

    There is a dos command called: shutdown - in a command window type in:
    shutdown /? for a list of switches.

    You could place a shortcut to it on your desktop with a target of:
    shutdown -a
    Double click on it when your system wants to reboot, this should abort
    a system shutdown.

    LOL. Yes, it can be a pity, especially with, let's say, laboratory pcs
    usually running data acquisition tasks along the weekend while also
    connected to a corporate LAN equipped with some SUS server. Damned, NO the
    amico acid analyzer and the mass spectrometer DON't want to restart JUST
    NOW while in the middle of a measurement sequence. And then somewhere
    someone uses to make that notification (default to "yes") automagically get
    the focus, but the monitor on said lab machine already switched to
    powersave ... and someone just hit the ENTER key to make it "shine again"
    and show the progress.
    Ok, there is "gpedit.msc". You may want to add the "wuaupdate" or something
    like that, adm template, and set the policy (or use ntconfig.pol on
    corporate machines, or grouppolicy on a AD domain).
    You also may go to control panel - windows update, for a single box.
    Or switch to linux (unfortunatle not applicable for a lab machine).
    No, not SuSE :)).

    How about not installing the update until you are ready and have the time to
    re-start your pc?

    I cant remember for sure but I think I can recall an option to NOT notify
    about this update in the future... (something like that).
    But perhaps that is a part of SP2 that you refuse to install in the first
    place!
    Install SP2 with the network install download... you download a big file and
    it updates everything

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...be-3b8e-4f30-8245-9e368d3cdb5a&displaylang=en

    SP2 works fine and should be installed on every machine...
    also stop bieng paranoid.

    you mean the window that pops up after you install some update... ok

    listen, here is the solution:

    I use a small ulitity that can place any window in the system tray... and
    alot of other things too, I have this running in startup since it is VERY
    usefull and has a very
    small footprint. So what I do when that pops up I select it to be sent to
    the tray...
    and there is no more pop ups of that! :)

    here is the link towards the small app..
    http://www.veridicus.com/tummy/programming/powermenu/

    Power Menu is a small app that adds "Always On Top", "Minimize To Tray",
    "Priority" and "Transparency" sub menus to all top level system menus..

    Wrong. Compare apples with apples, not with oranges. Linux KERNEL - the
    equivalent to Windows - has LESS updates than Windows. Do NOT include all
    the updates for Linux APPLICATIONS with the updates that are for the kernel
    only. If you do, then you need to also include in the Windows updates, all
    the patches for Office, Photoshop, Internet Explorer, all the Antivirus and
    Spyware updates that Linux doesn't need, etc etc. Don't LIE.

    You are wrong. How many different versions of Linux is out there. You are a
    Linux user and you cant count that high. Mac started with 10.0 now they are
    up to 10.39 and that is just OS changes which does not include all the
    security patches.

    Thought you were on to something, but no such reg entry.

    Walter Mautner had the best approach
    Start/Run gpedit.msc <enter>
    goto Admin templates - Windows Components - Windows Update
    Configure: No Auto-restart....

    Result:
    Specifies that to complete a scheduled installation, Automatic Updates
    will wait for the computer to be restarted by any user who is logged
    on, instead of causing the computer to restart automatically.

    You have to create the entries when they are not there.

    The reg entry I gave is for that policy.

    Enable the policy, then look at the reg entry. It should be there. When the
    policy is Not Configued, the reg entry wuld be missing. If the OP had XP
    Home which the OP does not, you would have to make the reg entry manually to
    prevent the auto restart

    Quite right, & that's the big mistake a lot of Windows users make.

    Ahh, I butt'd in, figure'd I'd set the policy. Your right it does
    create that key.

    Ya did that as the previous post indicates.

    I hate doing that tho, some girl posted once that she did this and
    that and now her network didn't work.

    So I did this and that as well - and sure enough lost my network :)

    You Linux users are worse then Mac users. I have a Mac sitting right next to
    my PC. Just like I said too many to count. So instead of answering the
    question you sit there and try to defend Linux. Typical Linux user. I will
    post a link to the stats as soon as I find it.
