    Yep. Happened to my kid's computers. Kind of took me by surprise, since they tend to never turn the computer off but just the monitor.

    On the other hand, the automatic updates have always annoyed me and I typically turn them off on my computer - it's irritating to come back to my machine and find that all the windows I left open are gone, and every app I left wiped. It's never a catastrophe - just a nuisance.

    over the years MS own updates have repeatedly broken Office or the OS
    .... I only recommend 'auto updates' for uneducated people who truly don't known how their computer works
