Thanks for the heads up and an EXCELLENT summary :thumbsup:

I'll share my "color coded" blog post on this - lol I'd encourage everyone to get updated as quickly as possible, esp. with 8 CRITICAL vulnerabilities affecting Windows, Office, IE and other products.

Hi TeMerc ,
I received those critical updates this morning, included was a Malicious Software Removal Tool, is this a program or is it a add on to Microsoft AntiSpyware? I have done a search for it , and tried to find more information about it at the Microsoft Web Site, not much help there.
Thank You,
P.S. I dug a little deeper today, and found this at the, Microsoft web site. The only new files I found on my computer that had anything to do with it was in, Run, type: %windir%debug and both are empty. Have a great day, Wink
