I generally set my windoze (and Linux) installations to download updates automatically and tell me they're there, but not to install until I say so, just to avoid that sort of "what happened when to cause this clusterf*ck?" moments. But then I'm a little paranoid about such things...

I have Windows set to update every Wednesday automatically, everything else has to ask my permission. The only reason Windows Update is even getting a mention here is because it was set to update overnight on the very night my manual update of AVG failed and this problem happened. I doubt it has anything to do with the problem, although it seems unlikely the auto-update will have run because the borkingness happened before it was due and my machine was busy tying itself in knots instead of dutifully updating.
