Security Update 908531 (Security Bulletin MS06-015), for example, triggered application lock-ups and made folders like "My Documents" inaccessible for afflicted users. Email Battles explains why you can count Automatic Update as a spectacular failure... or a stunning success. It's a "glass half-full or glass half-empty" thing.
