That's true, and from my myopic perspective, that's a plus. I don't want
the service level check running in startup. It takes long enough to boot up
a PC these days without that. I've also turned off the history log and the
task bar icon. Updates have been pretty much a no-brainer. If they look OK,
I just mail a desktop .lnk file to the users with boiler plate instructions
and let 'em go at it. The worst that can happen is that I would have to
delete CA and reinstall. It hasn't been necessary yet. If they don't
install an update for some reason, I can always help them do it later. It's
worked very well so far, and has taken almost no effort on my part.
