News Microsoft May Patch Tuesday

Microsoft have released their monthly in-band updates for this month, curiously none are mentioned as security updates, other than the usual malicious software tool update. Obviously there may be updates for other Microsoft operating systems as well, so you should run Windows Update or face comedy reboots at inconvenient times later instead.

Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool x64 - May 2011 (KB890830)
After the download, this tool runs one time to check your computer for infection by specific, prevalent malicious software (including Blaster, Sasser, and Mydoom) and helps remove any infection that is found. If an infection is found, the tool will display a status report the next time that you start your computer. A new version of the tool will be offered every month. If you want to manually run the tool on your computer, you can download a copy from the Microsoft Download Center, or you can run an online version from microsoft.com. This tool is not a replacement for an antivirus product. To help protect your computer, you should use an antivirus product.
More information:
The Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool helps remove specific, prevalent malicious software from computers that are running Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, or Windows XP
Interesting that they would push out an update that might prevent me from installing Service Pack 1, when I am running it already but I love updates and so it is time to reboot!
