August will be another substantial patch month for Microsoft, with the vendor releasing 12 security bulletins next Tuesday to fix holes in its Windows OS (operating system) and the Office productivity suite.

Ten of the patches will affect Windows, with at least one rated as a 'critical' update. The other two security updates, at least one of which is also rated critical, affect Office...

And especially for those of us who own more than one pc and only have dial-up. I guess MS figures we have nothing better to do with our time.

I am in the same boat. I generally download the patches to disk and install them on the computers that way, but it is still a real pain.
