Updating your computer is almost complete restart now

I'm often typing away at the keyboard only to learn that the last few sentences haven't appeared because that fucking pop-up screen has re-asserted itself, taking precedence over the stuff I thought I was working on.

But NO, I have to click "restart later" for the fourteenth time that day before I may be allowed to work on my own fucking shit.

You muist restart your computer for the update to take effect. ," followed by two check-boxes, one giving me the option to "restart now" and the other giving me the option to "restart later." 1) How about the option of "fuck off and die and patch your fucking vulnerabilities so that my network is not plagued with traffic from your shitty infected machine?

5) How dare you shut down my computer without asking me (several times) if I want to lose material or save it?

This is a new complaint: I just got a netbook last week, and on it, when I went to click "stand by" so I could continue to work on a chapter I was in the middle of, and also to read some SD tabs I'd saved on my subway ride home, it gave me as my only option for standing by "Install automatic updates and stand by," so I clicked that, thinking foolishly that all the stuff I had open would reappear when it was done.

At the same time, maybe some of the things you're so kindly offering to update will actually fuck up my ability to use certain functions.

(I know that I have been told NOT to stall newer versions of Adobe because my payroll system, which I need to access so my assistants get paid properly and on time, can only operate on older versions.) Why wouold I want to install updates when you don't even tell me what they are, what they do, wht problems they might cause, or give me the ability to install some and not others?

) prr, I'm not sure which browser you're using, but some can save tabs on close.

Opera and Chrome will ask if you want to restore the tabs if the browser shutdown was untidy. More techno-savvy Dopers than I can probably explain what these things are, and who they come from ,and how much attention I need to pay them, but it's sufficient for now that I am FUCKING PLAGUED with these irritating worms and trojans that spread from people who ignore messages that say: 'AUTOMATIC UPDATES' that tell me "Updating your computer is almost complete.

Like, maybe my IT department really wished I would click that fucking button so they don't have to reimage my machine every 3 months because I failed to install any updates I actually need?

3) I don't want to install updates, because I don't really understand enough about IT to know what a critical vulnerability is and you don't even tell me what they are, what they do, wht problems they might cause, because I wouldn't understand it anyway?

3) Did you ever consider I might have a good reason for not wanting to update at all?
