Owners of Samsung PCs who use the company's own software update utility will soon be able to breathe easier. After the revelation that Samsung's software deliberately disabled Windows Update for reasons we still can't quite fathom, the company told VentureBeat that it'll be patching its software to restore recommended Windows Update settings (which is to say, on and automatic) to affected machines.
Based on Samsung's statements to VB, the patch will arrive "within a few days" through the same SW Update utility. After the initial story broke, Samsung claimed that it was disabling Windows Update to "[provide] users with the option to choose if and when they want to update the Windows software on their products." Whatever the misguided reasoning behind this choice, it's good to see Samsung set things right.
