    Several of my posts have suggested not allowing automatic updates. Some people don't have problems, but some DO.

    Thanks for the reminder, guys. I just changed mine to "download but let me decide..."

    I always use notify me but let me choose when to download and install because while downloading is supposed to happen in the background its always been the case that the UI gets sluggish and erratic while updates are downloading. Obviously they have a different view of background than I and theirs is clearly incorrect. :D
