The Monthly Pilgrimage to Windows Update

If you’re a Windows user – and at least 90% of you reading this are – you’ll want to fire up IE and head over to Windows Update and install the patches that Microsoft released today. All versions of Windows are affected, even Windows XP SP2 users.
Today’s been kind-of fitting really – Apple announces some awesome new products, Microsoft announces some critical security patches.


  1. Although, the 2 I got were both labeled critical, only one is a patch. The other is the new Anti-Spyware tool.

  2. I have to admit that I did get 02n3d by the html help exploit on Monday… the one time I use IE….if only it had been a few days earlier.
    And don’t you mean daily check for updates?!!!

  3. I don’t know why I’m surprised but you have to go fetch the patches via IE. [Insert cuss word of your choice here]

  4. I wish to update to USB 2 and require help
    Thank you
