Windows 7: Out-of-band security update

29 Dec 2011   #1

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit
Out-of-band security update

Microsoft has released and out-of-band update (that means, before the 2nd Tuesday of next month).

This is an important update.

True is that with automatically update selected then you will be updated, but not until you next update cycle.

Control Panel | Windows Update | Check for Updates (left side)

Do this whether or not Windows Update tells you that you are up-to-date.

Here is a well-written article on this matter.

If this has already been mentioned elsewhre, I apologize.

Thanx for the link & update. Usually anytime something like that shows up at an odd time, I tend to be suspicious.
