    As promised Microsoft today rolled out 11 security updates that patch 17 vulnerabilities in Windows, Office, Internet Explorer, Internet Information Server (IIS) and several other components and technologies. That's Microsoft's biggest patch update in a year, with six of the 11 fixes ranked as "critical" and the other five ranked "important". Check the full Microsoft Security Bulletin summary for February 2008 here or start the Automatic Update feature.

    Someone at work mentioned this earlier today and then sarcastically added; "At the end of the update it uninstalls Internet Explorer and installs Firefox.":laugh:

    I don't know about everyone else but this update extremely slowed my boot time and changed my task manager by removing all my tabs, so I can't even exit or minimize. Only at the task bar. Any one else had this problem?

    K, it's fixxed.
    At first I did a system restore and that didn't work, so it couldn't have been the MS update.
    Google search and found out just to double click the boarder of Task Manager, simple, duh. That made the difference of the boot time. :toast:
