I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Ron,

MS releases security updates once a month (on the second Tuesday of each month, known as "Patch Tuesday"), but also releases them at other times when deemed to be urgent. You may find a list of them here:
