One of the things I really dislike about Microsoft Windows is the way updates barge in and trample all over my setup, like the wombat in the comparethemarket commercial.  The convenience of auto-updates is more than offset by the work I have to put into getting everything back in order.

Why can’t there be a protocol for signifying which apps are critical so that any incoming update or install can avoid overwriting their registry details?

I appreciate that I may be asking the impossible, but if nobody asks, nothing will change.

So why not me?
