Pro comes with the necessary policy editor, Home doesn't. Can I get the .msc out of Pro and put it in my Home? Or can I regedit the policy directly. I've dipped into my registry countless times and never messed up. I hate it when your software morphs. I want to be notified, and then I want to take my own sweet time before updating. For example, my Win7 laptop wants to update but I have a bunch of financial stuff in the wind, and don't want to update until the financials stabilize. I now wish I'd paid extra for the Pro. I'm thinking of getting another HTPC. If so I think I'll spend the extra on that one, and move it to my LR. (#3 is for my bedroom, the den is #2).
