    3. Critical Updates for Windows
      There are three critical updates for January 2006 from Microsoft
      See our Patch Page for details and instructions.
      Microsoft's description of the patches is at Otherwise,
      • If you wish, you can run Microsoft Update from the MS website. It will take a lot longer, but this would be appropriate for your own staff machines.
      • If you do run updates, do not turn Automatic Updating on. We are going to test Automatic Update at SNO for the next two months before deciding what to do.
      • We will take care of Print Release Servers. Can everyone leave their Print Release Servers on tomorrow (Friday)? We can update these remotely.
      • We will take care of the self check machines (Libramation's) that need updating.
      • We will take care of the public machines, unless you arrange with us to do that.
  3. Training and informational issues raised:
