    updates are free, why do u hate them unless u have a pirated windows. besides, every software out there has bugs, weather an Operating system or any application, so updating is not bad i guess

    "Microsoft has pulled four bulletins from its announced list of Patch Tuesday fixes, but did not specify why it was backpedaling on the security releases."
