I sympathise with Steve, and also see how easy it is to save various personal configuration files, if you think of it! But, we are all lazy and nowadays many programmes update themselves in a way that is so transparent you hardly notice it happen. Surely, it is not beyond the wit of IMSI programmers to reinstate the programme to it's existing configuration when updating, particularly when there have been no major changes to the look and feel of the programme itself? At the very least, wouldn't it be polite to give a warning, that things are going to change to a default? An option to bale-out of the update process would allow saving of any configuration files, if this was required.
