That "update automatically" box defaults to checked, dammit.

And I need to figure out how to tell IE10 not to spell check my entries.

Microsoft keeps adding features to successive versions of Windows and their other tools that I don't want, and every time I upgrade (voluntarily or involuntarily) I have to spend a bunch of time figuring out how to turn the damned things off again.

It is fortunate that they realize a lot of people don't want all the eye candy and annoying help features, and include a way to turn them off again. Their problem is that if they don't add stuff, what is the compelling reason for anyone to upgrade?
