What if Microsoft insists on updating your computer when you have to catch a flight?


I got a huge update today from Microsoft on my machines, 40 of them in Windows 8.  And it also seemed that it did not give me the customary two days Restart with Update.

In fact, it offered Shut Down with Update and Restart with Update.  What if I had to make a flight?  I always turn off my computer and disconnect it (one of them, the HP Envy, is a “desktop” requiring current) if I leave for a long time.  This is not good.

The Malicious Software Removal update takes a particularly long time in both W7 and W8.
