I think you should read the article again because the problem is not
with Msft updates but with Bitdefender.
As for turning off Windows Update you are the one asking for troubles.
Can you give me any person examples? Doubtful you can. I had a .net
update fail and hang my system for hours resulting in a forced shut
down that required a complete reinstall as there was no repair option
or any other fix anywhere to be found. Try Google and see how many
have had similar problems and then tell me about it. More problems
with updates then problem solved by them.
