Windows Update Day


It’s the second Tuesday of the month…

That means it is time to go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and download the latest patches:


·      
MS04-11 – Windows fixes


·      
MS04-12 – RPC/DCOM fixes


·      
MS04-13 – Outlook Express fixes


·      
MS04-14 – JET fixes

Apparently Windows XP SP 2 already contains these fixes (Windows Update tells me there’s nothing to do), so if you’re running RC 1 then you probably won’t have anything to update. You should still visit Windows Update just in case (and make sure you have Automatic Updates turned on, too!)

    Great, the bulletin email notification service is slow again. At least this time the gutter press (e.g. The Inquirer, which is running a particularly brain-dead anti-Windows article today) hasn’t got this information first.

    That TechNet site really needs an RSS feed, IMO.

    Thanks, Peter.

    Don’t be fooled by Windows Update V5 not offering you any updates. Just read the EULA, it says that it will not (though it may) include all security updates.
