WSUS....

I just checked my primary WSUS server & I see that WDS (windows Desktop Search) V2.6.5, 2.6.6 & 3.0.1 are all classed as plain "updates" & are all set as "no approval set" - meaning that I don't have to worry about it springing up when I'm not expecting it - is someone being a little cavalier with the auto-approval thingy?

Terms of use

I work in the public sector & even when you remind the mpeg storing, CD ripping loon who just installed the 180solutions toolbar "cos it looked cool" that they signed an acceptible use policy, they just complain of harrassment. I'd like to show them what real harrassment is - BOFH style!
