Thanks, you are right, had to dig a bit to confirm! A timely reminder that automatic updates may not be a good thing to have running.

Automatic updates are ok as you can choose to let it to inform that an update has been downloaded but you have the overall say as to wheater the update is installed.

Or you can choose to let it inform you that updates are available but it wants you to have the say on wheather it can be downloaded or not.

Thanks for the info. I've never enabled automatic updates so I wasn't aware of the options. I now feel it may be better to watch these pages until I see 'You must have this' or 'Don't install this' before downloading!
