    I run windows, and windows thinks that it can do whatever the f*ck it wants sometimes.

    So I am working on a wordpress website doing HTML... And suddenly I see without warning some of my applications start to close down.

    So I frantically attempt to save everything before windows takes full control.

    Seconds later I find myself sitting like a Lemon watching the screen while it says do not turn power off, windows is updating with the stupid blue circle cursor spinning..... Amazing can you at least play some f*cking music, is this rotating blue piece of sh*t the best entertainment you can provide me with?????

    So I naturally get up and leave the comp to it...30 mins later I find the power is off so I turn it back on, everything seems normal, but wait...."Windows is installing updates 1 out of 9"

    You gotta be shitting me, I already did my waiting time. Now I have to wait again???

    Sometimes I feel windows is running me and I am just sort of tricking it to make it do stuff that I need to do.

    I need to switch to mac or something. Anything must be better then this sh*t where the operating system operates the user into waiting for updates to be installed.

    I got this problem too but I solved it :) . I was letting the laptop up for the night with some programs running on it and in the morning I would find it all fu##ED up. It was automatically doing updates at 2 AM. Just change the settings so it will ask for your permission to download and install new updates.

    You can turn off automatic updates in windows or set it to require your approval before starting any updates.

    Stops unexpected updates from ruining your day :p

    I used to run into this when getting new comps. Would always forget to change the update schedule.

    Now I just run Linux...

    Mac is shitty if you are an internet marketer. Trust me , just turn off auto update setting on windows and everything's cool again.

    Heaps of marketing software don't have Mac versions.

    Its a pain opening multiple browser windows (even opening a link in a new window is a pain in the ass)

    and more

    I once wrote a 2.5k word science report and for some reason I did not save. Open office.

    Then I went to the toilet and when I came back I literally cried. And open office didnt have a autosave function back then.
