    Default 'Critical' Windows Patch Coming Tuesday

    Microsoft gives advance warnings about the patches to allow IT managers to prepare for the event. In July, Microsoft issued two patches for Windows and one for Office; this month's "Patch Tuesday" also coincides with the release of an updated version of Microsoft's Malicious Software Removal Tool.

    Well I saw on the news yesterday that microsoft released some security updates that must be downloaded. I think it was located at Microsoft.com/security. I think. Was doing something while watching the news so hope i'm correct.

    The popup came for me yesterday too. Selected all of them except the Malicious Software removal tool. I don't need it. I know I don't have Blaster or the other viruses it looks for on my computer.
