• MS-DEFCON 2: Make sure Windows Update is de-fanged. Patch Tuesday’s tomorrow.

    It’s been an interesting month in Patch City. First the WinXP/Vista/Win7 emergency patch (yes, you need to install the latest patches for all of them), and then the release of Win10 version 1903, which only appears to be going out to suckers, er, seekers. There’s one born every minute.

    I have a full rundown of what to do and how to do it — with special new instructions for those of you running Win10 1903 — in Computerworld Woody on Windows.
