Microsoft updating without permission?

Microsoft Corp. has started updating files on computers running Windows XP and Vista, even when users have explicitly disabled the operating systems’ automatic update feature, researchers said today.
Can you believe this? Looks like your home computer running windoze is not yours, it belongs to Microsoft. If they can do this, then what other information are they grabbing from your hard drive? With this "swiss cheese" OS, they are able to roam your drive at will. How far do you trust these folks?

They are only updating the update software, or so they say. I have zero trust in Redmond to follow any moral laws, given their track record. They are about as trustworthy as a rattlesnake.

Article on zdnet said if you try to do a repair on XP it will not allow the updates to be applied. Looks ;ike M$ is acting true to form, update breaking the system, again. Makes you wonder if they will ever get it right.
