M$ Explains the Recent Forced System Updates and System Reboots

Register report on October 25 that informed us that a number of admins were seeing Microsoft Desktop Search 3.01 pushed out to users via Microsoft’s WSUS enterprise patching/update system, in spite of having opted out of this “resource-hogging search app.” (the new version is not much different from the old one, hogs your system!).
Meanwhile, there’s a new theory circulating as to why a number of Windows XP and Vista users are reporting that their machines are patching and forcibly rebooting themselves. It might be Windows Live OneCare’s fault.
ZDNet's M.J. Foley's unblinking eye on M$ has put all those information together with explanations and updates from M$. Happy Computing!
