>>30004078 Doesn't seem like it. With 8 they decided to give you 5 days notice, then force a restart. I've been dealing with it since installing. It doesn't happen all that often though. :/

When the world restarts, the computer just assumes the default settings.

>>30004097 It kind of makes sense, I've lost count of the amount of people I have told their computer is full of malware in part because they refuse to install Micr$hit updates just because they think it forces them to restart their computer the second it finishes or because they take too long.
