I would like to see some steps to reproduce on a freshly booted system.

Thank you Stephan for your input.

Firstly, when ever I do an install the User does not have root privileges. I do
not follow a standard Install where the user is already root.

The concept of auto installation or change to any installed software, without
needing root authority is down right wrong!

That should clarify alot of issues. When I shutdown and restart any PC's all
X64 and application runs notifying me that software updates are downloaded and
Installed without root authority.

Apper on the other hand does require Root escalation without fail, however its
has dependence issues it cannot resole a lot of the time- More on that later.

Stephan could you please let me know what log files you need to debug this.
