Covered in step 2 - Download and install software to PC.

My downtime usually comes on Sunday afternoons (no, I do not attend church) or late at night (when no one calls). Its very easy to start up the process and walk away (heck, go take a shower or watch the news).

Simply put, with some things, automatic updates are quite reasonable and convenient for some things. I do have a certain level of appreciation for things that can make my day more productive (heck, I'm in an industry that prides itself on such a solution), however there are simply some things that should require a person's interaction and attention... this is one of those.
