April 2008 Windows Updates

April 2008 Windows Updates

Let me see a show of hands. How many of you have already installed the Windows Updates for April 2008? I hope most of you are raising your hand, because this month’s updates are as important as ever. As you may know, a total of eight updates came through, with five of those being categorized as “critical” and the other three as “important.” A few standard updates were included as well, including the Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. Okay, let’s check these out, shall we?!

In all honesty, once I read through all of the updates, I was pretty baffled. Most of them are a little difficult to understand, so I’m just going to give you the basics. Four of the critical updates dealt with issues happening in different versions of Microsoft Windows. Depending on the operating system you use, you received the updates designed specifically for your system. A couple of them also fixed problems in Internet Explorer and various MS Office programs. The three important updates included patches for Windows and MS Office as well.

Like I said before, some of the updates are hard to understand, but if you want to see a complete rundown of everything that changed on your computer this month, check out this Web site. It explains everything in full detail. All of these updates are very important to have on your computer, so if you haven’t installed them yet, I urge you to do so soon. Otherwise, you will be unsafe for a whole month and I really don’t want to see that happen. Be kind to your computer and get them today, my friends!
