    Microsoft is due to publish critical updates for Office and MSN Messenger when it delivers its next batch of security updates next Tuesday (12 April). Five patches addressing flaws in Windows and an update for Microsoft Exchange will also feature in Microsoft's plans to deliver a total of eight patches next week.

    Next Tuesday marks the expiry of a Windows XP SP2 blocker tool. When Microsoft released SP2 in August 2004 it offered firms the opportunity to "hold off" the automatic installation of SP2 while still receiving security patches for eight months. That suspension expires on 12 April. Janet Gibbons, Windows client product manager, said that because most corporates used their own deployment tools to impact of the automatic delivery of SP2 via Microsoft's Automatic Update service would "not be huge".
