Windows Autoupdate Blocking
MS have announced the retirement of these tools.
If for some reason (usually legacy applications?) you cannot update some systems you might bear this in mind?
Microsoft Corp. is warning customers that tools for blocking automatic upgrades to the newest service packs of Windows Vista and Windows XP
will expire in the coming months. In a note on a company blog
aimed at enterprise IT professionals, Microsoft said the Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) blocking tool expires on April 28, while the one for XP SP3 expires May 19.

So basically they will be forcing customers to upgrade SP's no matter what...
all aboard the fail train i say.
