  • MS-DEFCON 2: Make sure Windows Update is locked down

    Posted on January 13th, 2020 at 09:55 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Patch Tuesday arrives tomorrow. Good reason to make sure Automatic Update doesn’t strangle your machine.

    Full step-by-step details in Computerworld Woody on Windows.

    UPDATE: as of two hours ago, Will Dorman (who knows about such things) tweeted:

    I get the impression that people should perhaps pay very close attention to installing tomorrow’s Microsoft Patch Tuesday updates in a timely manner. Even more so than others. I don’t know… just call it a hunch? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    That’s one heck of a teaser. Stay tuned.
