Quick note to say I wasn't real impressed to see that Vista had installed updates and rebooted without asking last night. This morning, all the browser windows I'd had opened, the documents I was editing, etc, were no longer open.

Why not save what was going on into memory somewhere? Understanding that the updates make it hard to boot into exactly what you were looking from before, I still have to think the machine could keep some track of, say, my MS Word docs that were open. Firefox does a good job remembering "sessions"; why can't anyone else?
