Have you checked Windows update?  I did and there were 10 critical
updates.

I'm far from being a "systems guru".  I'm not a farmer either, but I know
manure when I smell it.  The two urgent update alerts I received the last
two days smelled badly.  Unlike the usually messages from my provider
that direct me to Microsoft's page, these allerts appeared as  pop ups
several minutes after I logged on telling me to "click here"  to update
my software.   Wonder if the  update comes with a Jeff Foxworthy screen
saver that says "Here's your sign"?


I did go to Microsoft's update page and found there are 2 new updates for
Feb (besides the dozens of language & euro crap).    That doesn't satisfy
me that the pop ups were legit.
