Users are urged to disable or uninstall java as there is a critical security vulnerability which is reportedly already being used for large scale cyberattacks.

Java 7 Update 10 and earlier contain an unspecified vulnerability that can allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.

Internet Explorer users should just uninstall Java for now.

Microsoft unveils Internet Explorer 10 Release Preview for Windows 7

Microsoft has announced the availability of Internet Explorer 10 as a Release Preview edition – in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavours – for Windows 7. (And yes, only Windows 7 users with SP1 installed need apply. Windows Vista and XP are left out of this one.)

Changes are mostly under the hood, but the upgrade does deliver some major performance improvements which you may like to try.

In our first tests, the new Release Preview installed much like any other Windows update. It downloads a few files, and whirs for a while before demanding a reboot. Which takes a little longer than usual as various core files are replaced.
Is anyone using this yet? If so. What do you think of it?

Microsoft Corp. said Monday that Steven Sinofsky, the president of its Windows and Windows Live operations, is leaving the company.

Sinofsky's departure comes just weeks after the Redmond, Wash., software company launched Windows 8, which represented a major overhaul of its ubiquitous computer operating system.

Now I wonder if this has anything to do with all the changes in Windows 8.

Microsoft announced that Windows 8 will be launched on October 26th. I still think it will flop. I will stick with MAC until windows 9 comes out.
