Microsoft's Update and Reset Several Of ACT's Preferences

This morning when I started my computer I saw the message that Microsoft had to finish its Tuesday updates.  Followed the screen prompts and then during the morning the following preferenses showed as being reset or not set at all:

 

  • Communications - the Dialer was not set up, but it kept the background information
  • E-Mail - had to tell it OUtlook once again.  I use an add in called eMailConnect and it was working just fine.

 

All were easily fixed, but with all the comments about Microsoft lately, I thought this would be of interest to the advanced gurus on the board.

I was told by Act! support to turn Microsoft automatic updates off because they are not necessary.

Really?

 

I tell my clients to run MS Updates, I'd rather deal with the issues an update causes than the issues not updating causes (Virus infections/SPAM Bots/other nasties).

 

Each to their own I suppose.
