Vista SP2 Release

I'm a few days behind in updating the blog...okay, months behind in updating. I was just going to post that Microsoft released SP2 for Vista and Server 2008  last week. I have installed the SP on just a single Vista Business install so far, but have had no trouble from it. Actually, I think performance has improved just slightly since the service pack was installed.

Here are the download links for the updates:

Critical IE Security Patch Released

In case you haven't been paying attention to the news lately, there has been a security flaw publicised that affects Internet Explorer versions 5.01, 6, 6 SP1, and 7. Microsoft even recommends patching IE 8 Beta 2. The flaw could allow remote code execution by visiting compromised websites.

More information can be found on the MS Security Bulletin page for this patch:

It is recommended that everyone install this patch by running Windows Updates. If you have Automatic Updates enabled, you will automatically receive this patch.

Live Sysinternals

Have you ever been out working on a computer and realized that you've forgotten your trusty flash drive with all of your beloved tools and utilities on it? I've had that happen before and it's always frustrating to have to go online, find the utility that you need, and then download it. I have been a big fan of Sysinternal's tools, even before they were acquired by Microsoft.
