As Neil said Tuesday. How long have you not been able to get updates?

On 14 February 2006 Microsoft is planning to release:

Security Updates

. One Microsoft Security Bulletin affecting Microsoft Windows
Media Player. The highest Maximum Severity rating for this is Critical. These updates will not require a restart. These updates will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer and the Enterprise Scanning Tool.

. Four Microsoft Security Bulletins affecting Microsoft Windows.
The highest Maximum Severity rating for these is Critical. Some of these updates will require a restart. These updates will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer.

. One Microsoft Security Bulletin affecting Microsoft Windows
and Microsoft Office. The highest Maximum Severity rating for these is Important. These updates will require a restart. These updates will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer.

. One Microsoft Security Bulletin affecting Microsoft Office.
The highest Maximum Severity rating for this is Important. These updates may require a restart. These updates will be detectable using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer.

Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool

. Microsoft will release an updated version of the Microsoft
Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool on Windows Update, Microsoft Update, Windows Server Update Services and the Download Center.
Note that this tool will NOT be distributed using Software Update Services (SUS).

Non-security High Priority updates on MU, WU, WSUS and SUS

. Microsoft will not release any NON-SECURITY High-Priority

Although we do not anticipate any changes, the number of bulletins, products affected, restart information and severities are subject to change until released.
