Microsoft says sorry for sneak Windows updates

Should have warned you first

 

Microsoft has apologized for pushing updates on users without their blessing.

Over the last few weeks, Windows Update has updated nine small executable files even when the feature was switched off.

The updates were to the Windows Update engine. Microsoft said that if Windows Update doesn't update itself, it stops functioning properly.

Nate Clinton, Windows Update program manger, said the result would fail to meet customer expectations but even worse, would lead users to believe that they were secure even though there was no installation and/or notification of upgrades.

However he admitted that Microsoft should have warned users first and explained itself better.
