It seams even if you have Automatic updates set to NOTIFY BEFORE INSTALL Windows-7 installs anyways and re-boots automatically. I had a RR message at 3:30 this morning that my feed had not been seen in 15 minutes. I looked and sure enough I had a update, update itself and reboot. Which promptly canned Scannercast and upon restart did not allow scanner cast to start back thus My feed was down from 3:15 (ish) to 7:45 this wonderful COLD morning. and sure nuff, Automatic updates is STILL set to ask for MY permission before installing.

I think its time for a MAC!

I would just buy a used XPE Thin Client for $50 instead of $1,000+ Mac to host a feed. Plus I'm pretty sure Scannercast will not run on a Mac unless you run some type of visualization program. Scannercast works well on Thin Clients provided you have at least 512MB of flash storage to load .Net Framework 2.0. Good luck.
