For the 99 millionth time, I went through the Microsoft Windows update process, did their required reboot (Linux never seems to need to do that) and when I launch Notes what do I get but the old prompt "Lotus Notes is not your default email program...." dialog box.
Yes, Microsoft has apparently decided it is acceptable to set Outlook as your default mail program frequently as part of their "Security" update process.
As far as I am concerned, this is unethical behavior. The repeated abuse of this important update process does nothing but turn off users and reduce compliance with critical updates. There's nothing I hate more than being manipulated in any way and this is just one little tweak to that hot button of mine that pisses me off pretty regularly.
