I am on a cable connection and every Fri nite when I click the little "e" to open up my browser it goes straight to Win updates. I have done nothing to set this up but it's been going on for about 2 months. Not a big deal but I wonder why this happens. Only on Fri nites

Hunt down the Scheduled tasks....I bet there is a task scheduled to run every Friday.

Just checked, and the only scheduled task is my anti-virus which I think set it up itself.

You know Mark....Every now and then, the same thing happens to me.
In IE, I have my Home page set to "about:Blank". But once in a while it will load the Windows Update site when I first open it.

I have nothing scheduled either, nor do I think it happens on any kind of regular basis like in your case.
I wouldn't worry a whole lot about it....Probably another hidden Bug (Whoops) I mean "feature". :D

Probably a "easter egg" from Mr. Gates : )
