Microsoft updates

Discussion in 'PC/Windows/Linux' started by barriosa, Jul 11, 2007.

  1. Well yesterday was the second Tuesday of the month. PC Owners, you know what that means...

    More security patches to download and install!!

  2. I just got a MS update a few hours ago.
  3. The joy of "Patch Tuesday"!!! Mine got applied last night.
  4. I get far fewer updates on my Mac than I do on Windows. I am so glad I made the switch to Mac OS X. I love my new 17-inch MacBook Pro.
  5. I turned off

    auto updates and haven't installed any in quite some time. I sounds kinda risky, but I have been in the IT field for years as a professional and have had more problems with updates then with out (if it ain't broke, don't fix it approach). I don't recommend that approach to everyone, but using a good firewall (hardware router), good AV, and a more secure browser such as firefox and alot of issues are easily avoidable.
  6. The last patch for my Windows XP SP2 system was less then a meg and 5MB's for an Office 2007 update. The last security update on my15-inch MacBook Pro was just a hair over 56MB's. They may not need to send out monthly security patches but they periodically send out some huge one's when they do.
