So, do I reboot into my windows 7 box and just let it update, then complain to law enforcement that my computer was "altered" against my will ?

I think that an major OS update should NEVER be done without explicit consent from the user, not unreasonable given the risk of problems. So, in my opinion this does indeed already qualify as an unwarranted invasion of my system, and if it borked the upgrade it would be a Denial of Service with consequential liability on top.

However, just to make life easier for criminal charges we will reserve this for when you have actively gone out of your way to stop this from happening by playing "hunt for the little tickbox" game that MS is playing and it then STILL installs. Heck, it should not even download that virus update without your permission.
