Technical Insanity

In every Microsoft operating system since windows 98 (It was installed as an extra, remember?) there has been Windows Update… theĀ application. It sits there in your system tray and reminds you every 2 minutes that you have one update to install that affects something you never use, then waits for you to go get a cup of tea before forcefully restarting you computer, casually losing anything you were working on!

For those of you who follow this blog, you may have noticed this being posted before, but you may not have noticed that this is an update! When an update window is seen, the process is automatically terminated for you. This does not affect the normal updating of your computer, but merely stops it bugging you about the update, and stops it for restarting by itself. The result? When you return from getting your cup of tea you work is still on the screen of your computer with you music still playing, ready for you to continue using it… the way it’s meant to be!

This version is also developed to work with windows 7 and XP, although others should work! Requires .Net Framework v2.0 to work.

If you have any comments orĀ suggestions, please comment on this post. You never know, it might just get added!
