Windows Updates

An interesting selection of critical and Office-related updates from MS today - Patch Tuesday.

However, I'm utterly bemused as to why I should be even remotely interested in the patch which relates to the change in Australian Daylight Saving Time as a result of the Commonwealth Games !!??

I'm wondering why my desktop only recieved one, despite not having updated it for a week or so. I don't use the annoying Automatic Update system. My laptop got all five.

the daylight changing patch has no relevance to us mere mortals unless your lucky enough to be going to oz and taking your laptop with you.

the patch would be aimed more at the media, and buisness sponsoring the comonwealth games journalists company reps will travel to oz and no doubt laptops pda's etc will travel with them

All I got was the malicious software thingy, Defender and some odd and ends for Outlook and Excel. No mention of daylight saving. Is this parculiar to laptops?

no not particular to laptops but cant envisage anyone dragging their desktop on a flight to oz unless they are emmigrating

"Is this parculiar to laptops?"

No. It was 'offered' to my desktop. I declined. ;-))

I first got the need for an update to the validation tool, after which I got 4 critical updates. The auto function did not work for the validation tool, I had to do that manually.

"auto function did not work for the validation tool, I had to do that manually."

Yes, same for me.
