    The quick scan uses the CPU so much (20%-50%). The interface should have been designed better. I think the final product would be much better.

    not on my system hardly uses any cpu at all.. not sure why it does on yours

    max memory usage i have seen is 28mb no higher. i too have seen the dvdfab issue so for me thats a killer. otherwise i am not sure why people are having issues it runs smooth here

    I changed my settings to automatic update just to see what happens, it installed the updates for MSE but the update to .NET framework 3.5 SP 1, and the update Internet Explorer Compatibility View List just sat there until I decided to install them.

    Probably because the time you set for the automatic installation hasn't come yet. So when windows ran automatic update so it could get the updates for MSE the other 2 updates were downloaded as well however you will notice the automatic setting for WU allows you to set a particular time for the updates to be installed.

    But is it so bad to have it set on automatic updates, I mean, most updates can be uninstalled, right?

    True... but I have been on the "wrong end" of some windows updates in the past, in that some of them have caused more harm than good.

    So to avoid that I have automatic updates turned off and I manually check for updates myself instead. For me this is just a personal issue but for some users this won't be a problem.

    Windows Update in Automatic mode is a show-stopper. Period.

    That will likely change since that will never fly in a corporate environment.

    But that's what MSFT Forefront Client Security is for. MSE is only for individual consumers.

    Most of the companies use Group policy to manage Windows Update in client machines.
