I always turn off my computer before I go to bed. Last night I saw there was a Microsoft Windows update needing to be installed, so I clicked on it, figuring when I awoke this morning, I'd be up and running.
Oh no; when everything was said and done this morning, I couldn't access the Internet.
I called Embarq. The very friendly tech lady had me do a "system restore", going back to settings from Monday. This worked just dandy, and I had my Internet back. It also removed my update.
Trouble is, every time I turn my computer off now, those silly Windows updates install themselves automatically. And then, of course, I can't access the Internet and I have to do a system restore again.
Does anyone know if there's a way I can turn off the Windows updates? Or maybe I need to call Embarq again and tell them what's happening.
I'm not turning my computer off tonight, that's for sure. I'm tired of doing "system restore".
