Vista scares the hell out of me.

Yet another update comes through on Friday, but not one that keeps demanding that the computer be restarted. Trouble is with Vista is that setting the power button to Shutdown when there's an update seems to mean Shutdown and restart which is annoying.

So I use the Start menu's shutdown option which just does half the update and finishes up when I next reboot it. This takes time.

So I switch it on this morning and go and sort out other things and I come back to see the equivalent of a DOS prompt with registry keys flashing past.

Oh s***!

I let it run and everything's fine, but damn not what I needed after the weekend I had.
