windows_logoMicrosoft is releasing six new updates today that will impact all Windows users in some way.

The updates, scheduled to be automatically downloaded and installed tonight on most Windows systems, patch severe security issues in Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 8, and Microsoft Office.  Because of the Internet Explorer 7 component, just about every Windows System made after 2001 will be impacted.

This set of updates will address a critical security flaw that could allow users to take control of your computer, so it is important you get these installed.

If your computer is having trouble installing updates for any reason, contact us in Lincoln or Omaha, or seek the assistance of a technician who can get them installed before your computer is infected.

    Internet Explorer is not a browser I use or recommend to anybody, and yet again this is proving to be a wise decision. I also use OpenOffice, so if I’m not running IE or Office, will I be OK?

    I understand your feelings on IE. You will be safe from the office problems, but all Windows computers are running Internet Explorer whether you use the browser or not. Its an integrated part of the Operating System.

    It’s interesting that I have not heard about this already. Though, thanks for sharing and showing this information. Why has it not be that well advertised or did I just miss it?

    I have Windows XP SP3 and I have only 2.95GB after installing 11 important updates from Microsoft. I had 3.23GB before I even installed the updates. Is there a way I can stop Microsoft Updates from taking up my disk space? I did the basics to try and recover some disk space but it didn’t do anything. thanks..

    New systems are always filled with bugs and security holes and that is normal thing. But there is no need to be troubled – hackers must also explore those bugs to use them.

    I always wondered why Microsoft sends out product that allows hackers to take over your system and then come out later and say they have something to fix the problem. Thanks for this notice.
