  • MS-DEFCON 4: Time to get December patches installed

    Posted on December 24th, 2018 at 14:13 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    It looks like the “emergency” Internet Explorer patch is working. As for the Outlook patches for the “operation failed” Rules & Alerts bug, your guess is as good as mine — and Microsoft sure isn’t saying anything.

    All in all, it’s time to take your medicine, and get your machine caught up. If you’re helping hapless friends or relatives, and they’re using Win10 Pro or Education, get them going with a 15-day cumulative update lag on the Semi-Annual Channel (explained in the article).

    Then, if you have a sec, could you explain to my Sainted Aunt Martha — who paid good money for her Win10 machine — exactly what that last sentence means? Windows is sooooooo user-friendly.
