MS security updates and Windows Update

Confused and Bewildered
#1
Thanks to the News section of this site I learned MS had put out a new security update for IE on Feb. 11.

Just for kicks I ran Windows Update thinking that I could download the update from there, however much to my surprise I was told that I was all up to date (as I should be, I've been running it every day for a while now).

Which makes me wonder why MS would put out an important security update that I never would have known about if I hadn't visite this site on a whim? Is this a policy of theirs? Weird.

BTW this is my first post; I've enjoyed this site immensely, it's been a big help to me and my now week-long XP installation experience!

I've not yet searched for info on this fix, but often a new patch isn't added to Windows Update until a week or more after it's posted in the MSDN pages.

I don't have the cumulative Feb. 11 patch on my windows update neither =/

Just manually download or wait, as they said above, a week or so...

Try BigFix

BigFix is a similar prog to windows update but they tell me that they dont miss any fixes like WU does. the 11th Feb Security popped up at me from the taskbar today and the "fixlet" inlcuded a link to download the patch from the Microsft site.
